Bubble Wrap Paper

  1. Cut a piece of butcher paper large enough to wrap your gift and lay it flat on your work surface.
  2. Using scissors, cut a piece of bubble wrap, wrap it around the rolling pin and tape it into place.
  3. Using a large brush, lightly paint the bubble wrap with Shamrock Green or Flag Red.
  4. While the paint is still wet, roll the rolling pink onto the butcher paper creating a spotted pattern. Reapply paint to the bubble wrap and re-roll as needed. Let dry.
  5. Use the printed paper to wrap your gift and adorn with colorful strings and pom poms.
Star Paper
  1. Cut a piece of butcher paper large enough to wrap your gift and lay it flat on your work surface.
  2. Using a permanent marker, draw stars on a sponge. Two stars can fit onto one standard sized dish washing sponge.
  3. Using scissors cut out the stars.
  4. Apply paint to a paper plate (Flag Red, Regency Blue, Shamrock Green or Bright Yellow). Dip a star sponge into the paint and use it to stamp stars in a pattern on the paper. Repeat this step with all of the colors, cleaning the sponge in between colors. Let dry.
  5. Use the printed paper to wrap your gift and adorn it with colorful strings and pom poms.
