Buying and storing rolls and rolls of wrapping paper every year can be a hassle. Plus, once you have your gifts ready to give, they all look exactly the same when your wrapping paper is cut from the same roll. How boring! Step up your holiday gift-giving with something a little more personal. Danielle Driscoll of Finding Silver Pennies has shared a festive DIY tutorial on how to make Christmas wrapping paper with stencils. Read on to see how you can create your own beautiful wrapping paper with Royal Design Studio’s Holiday Stencils. Because, let’s face it, what’s on the outside counts too!
- Pine Forest Christmas Stencil, Falling Stars Christmas Stencil, and Holiday Garland Christmas Stencil
- Royal Stencil Creme Paints: Antique Silver and Antique Gold
- Royal Stencil Brushes
- Craft paper, Scissors, card stock, tag punchers, hole punch, twine, embellishments, and paper towels
Lay out your craft paper on a large surface. Secure the stencil with your hand and use the off-loading method – which is when you load your stencil brush with paint and then off-load the majority of that paint onto a paper towel. This method helps remove excess paint from the stencil brush and prevents the paint from bleeding under the stencil.
Use whatever repeated pattern or single design you’d like. You can even mix and match from Royal Design Studio’s entire Holiday Stencils Collection. Royal Stencil Cremes are also perfect for making a look uniquely your own.
Once the paper is dry, wrap your thoughtful gifts. It’s already coming together so beautifully!
To create your own matching gift tags, stencil the holiday designs onto card stock. Once dry, use a tag puncher to create the gift tag shape out of the stenciled card stock. Use a hole punch and twine to attach them to the wrapped gifts.
Decorate your presents with twine and other embellishments that give it the finished personal touch. Danielle loves decorating with elements from nature, so she added items such as feathers for a soft whimsical touch and rosemary for a lovely color and fragrance. You can use whatever you’d like, whether the item speaks to you or reminds you of whomever you’re giving the gift to.
And there you have it! Now you have stenciled Christmas wrapping paper that everyone will think is too beautiful to tear open. But, we bet they will anyway. *wink*
