Happy December! Let the Christmas preparations begin! Do you have your tree up yet? I’m still pulling out my decorations but that hasn’t stopped me from getting some gifts wrapped!

This year I decided to create my own wrapping paper with the help of DecoArt Americana paint and my Sizzix Big Shot to coordinate with my tree. I’m loving how it came out and I’m excited to share how you can make your own too!
Easy Hand Painted Wrapping Paper
What you will need:
Bigz Die – I used my Reindeer Die
Americana Acrylic Paint in Black
Kraft Wrapping Paper
Bow, Trimmings, etc.
Start by creating a Sizzix sandwich. The sandwich for using a Bigz die is a cutting pad, die, mat board and a second cutting pad. Place the sandwich in the Big Shot and turn the handle to make a die cut stencil.
Place the stencil on the paper and apply paint with a brush. I wanted a rough rustic look so I didn’t worry about crisp edges and I rubbed the brush in the stencil to give it a faded look.
Repeat to create a pattern. You can even add some Christmas balls from the antlers with red and green paint!
Now all you have to do is wrap your gift, add a coordinating bow and trimmings! The rustic theme has always been my favorite for Christmas decor and I just love all the buffalo check right now!
Wasn’t that easy? I can’t wait to wrap the rest of my gifts, they’re going to look perfect under the tree.
What do you think? I’d love to hear from you!
