I’ve been making my own gift wrap for years. some things I’ve done are buying plain white tissue paper, a rubber stamp with a Christmassy design (star/s, spirals, trees, etc.), and red/green/gold stamp pads, then just stamp randomly in any color combination. it will take more than one sheet of tissue per gift, so you can layer the sheets in any color combination. you can do the same thing with butcher paper, newsprint, or opened up paper bags. small gifts look great wrapped in small pieces of aluminum foil, tied with metallic ribbon. I also will use twine for ribbon, tying on a small ornament, old ties from thrift stores, or old scarves.

I love the bows! What a great way to use up scrapbooking supplies! I have several sheets tha I’ve gotten that I don’t need for anything but now I can use them up making bows! I think these will look fantastic on plain brown paper or plain white. Also a great way to use buttons too. I don’t think I’ll be buying bows for a very long time!
