Today we’re partnering with Scotch® Brand to show how you can wrap amazing gifts. For this hand-painted gift wrap, we first tried experimenting with patterns. It really helped to test designs and colors on the paper to see what looked best together. Once we found the styles we liked best, we painted a ton. It only took about an afternoon to paint six different designs and let them dry. Then they were ready to be wrapped up and topped with ribbon and garlands! Do you have a special way to wrap gifts? If so, you could enter for an opportunity to win up to $10,000! Enter the Scotch® Gifted Wrapper™ Contest by 12/9/14. Just click here for all the official rules.
Materials: Plain Matte Wrapping Paper, Scissors, Scotch® Magic™ Tape, Scotch® Double Sided Tape, Scotch® Metallic Washi Tape, Acrylic Paint, Paintbrush
Step 1: Roll out your wrapping paper and paint your pattern. We were inspired by 1980’s designs and colors, so we painted a grid, dots, stripes, squiggles, and half-moons. Let dry over night.
Step 2: Wrap your gift with the painted wrapping paper and Scotch® Magic™ Tape.
Step 3: Use Scotch® Double Sided Tape to attach gift toppers or ribbon.
Step 4: Another option is to add Scotch® Expressions Metallic Washi Tape to the sides/corners of your packages.
