DIY Craft: Print Your Own Wrapping Paper

Want to make your gift wrapping unique from others? Consider this simple DIY craft of printing your own wrapping paper with hand carved rubber stamps and acrylic paint. =)


DIY Craft: Print Your Own Wrapping Paper

It is quite simple to do ... All you need is some brown paper, a rubber, some acrylic paint, a small container to hold and blend your paint and a paintbrush.
I used a cookie cutter to get my rubber to a heart shape and used a cutter to to cut out some diagonal lines to give the heart some texture. Blend the paint to a color that you like, use the paintbrush to smear some paint on your rubber and start stamping away. Easy as ABC, right?


Add in a ribbon and I am done. Finally, my gift can be the unique one that stands out from the crowd.
The blue and yellow gift tag is made with oven baked clay. Check out how you can also make one here.
Till the next blog post, make something with your hands! =)

DIY Craft: Oven Baked Clay Gift Tags

DIY Craft: Oven Baked Clay Gift Tags

If you like DIY crafts and baking, you will love making things with clay. Both need kneading and rolling, both need cookie cutters, both need some attention to detail and both bring smiles to people’s faces. =)
Give your gifts that extra loving care, have a handmade gift tag. 
All you need is some Sculpey II Oven-Baked Clay (any 2 colors will do), alphabet stamps, some kitchen supplies (cookie cutters, toothpick, drinking straw), some super glue and your creativity.
All you have to do:
  1. Warm the clay in your hands by rolling it in your hands.
  2. Using the rolling pin, roll the clay out to about 3mm in thickness. 
  3. Create your tag with the alphabet stamps and kitchen supplies.
  4. Place the tag onto a baking tray lined with a baking sheet or aluminum foil. 
  5. Bake the tag in the oven as per the instructions on the Sculpey packaging - 130oC or 275oF for 15 minutes. Please do not microwave or exceed recommended temperature and baking time.
  6. After the tag has cooled and hardened, super glue the parts together if needed.
