Gift Wrap Wednesday #10 Cloud Paper
Today's gift wrap idea is inspired by the big, fluffy clouds (that also happen to be full of rain) in the sky above my home. I love this simple handmade gift wrap for Spring (wouldn't a baby shower gift look precious wrapped up this way?)
You will need:
-a brown paper bag (or brown craft paper)
-sheet of craft foam (or a foam tray used to package meat)
-magazines or scrap paper
For the clouds, you will need to make a stamp. I drew the cloud outline on a sheet of foam and cut it out, then glued it to a base. Almost anything flat will work as a base. Because of the size and transparency, I used a plastic cassette tape case. I made a printable stencil of my cloud sketch - just in case you haven't had two solid weeks of rain showers where you live to inspire you.
Using the stamp, create a cloudy sky pattern on the paper.
