Sifting through the Dollar Spot is like going on a mini treasure hunt every time I go to Target. You never know what kind of amazing goodies you’ll find! This time I picked up some pretty stamps and a roll of kraft paper. I love the versatility of kraft paper. I’ll show you how easy it is to dress it up and create one of a kind gift wrap.
- roll of kraft paper
- ink pad
Begin by cutting the kraft paper down to the size you’ll need to wrap your gift. Now grab your stamps and an ink pad and get ready to make it beautiful!
I’ve noticed that Target usually carries three types of stamp sets in the Dollar Spot. The set above with the happy birthday stamp is part of their current variety pack. You can usually find a set of letter stamps and a set of number stamps too. Each set is $3 and such a fun find! While I’m not using an alphabet set on this project, I wanted to share a little tip with you. You can easily group letters together by wrapping a piece of tape around them. This trick comes in handy if you’re stamping the same word a few times. Plus it keeps the letters nice and straight.
I kept it simple for this piece of gift wrap by using only the happy birthday stamp. I used a mix of blue and green inks and stamped until the kraft paper was mostly covered.
Once the ink is dry you can go ahead and wrap your gift. Don’t forget to add a piece of ribbon to finish it off. Customized wrapping paper only takes a few (fun!) minutes to put together, but your recipient is bound to love it!
