DIY // Potato Stamp Wrapping Paper

Hands down Christmas is the busiest time for a crafter, which is also what makes it so lovely, SO much crafting!! So instead of going out to buy Christmas paper, make your own unique wrapping paper, with that handmade touch we all love! I like to make my Christmas paper fairly early that way I know its always on hand!
*you can also use a sharpie to outline your designs

I think its just so pretty and simple! Just imagine all the patterns you could make, little santa hats, elf booties, presents, snowflakes! 
p.s. have you heard the new Michael Buble Christmas album? ♡

  1. I was planning or doing just this for Christmas! Got the brown paper and everything :-) So much cheaper than buying wrapping paper and more personal too!
    P.s. LOVE Mr. Buble!

  7. I'm such a magpie and I keep all wrapping paper that P and I get with presents, so I very rarely have to buy any! (Yes, like Monica from Friends I even iron it flat)
    I think next year I'll totally be buying some brown paper and doing this for when I run out or need huge sheets. Different shapes for different events! Love this Lauren!
