How to Make Your Own Up-cycled Wrapping Paper

I was so inspired by last week's guest posts by Corrine Gilman and Miriam Schulman.  Did you see them?  Here's how I used bits and pieces of both tutorials to make my own wrapping paper using paper bags and newsprint paper.


I used my stamps from RubberMoon with Black Archival Ink from Ranger.  Then I colored and doodled using my Posca Markers and Black Sharpie pens.

A little washi tape and cord remnants added color.

For this one, I used my Medallions stencil from Stencil Girl combined with a Hamsa Stamp, some doodling and leftover trim.

I love that the supplies were all things I had around the house, and that they look so home made and unique!

Here are some pictures from our Hanukkah celebration last week, with my mom, daughters, sister and brother in law, and my dad's sisters - the twins.

All my best wishes for a wonderful holiday season!
