For the last few months, i’ve been dying to find an excuse to try white ink on kraft paper.  And a recent holiday party served as the perfect excuse. I found this amazing diamond circle stamp at Paper Source that I thought would make the perfect oversized polka dot wrapping paper.  I bought a Frost White Color Box Ink Pad (also from Paper Source)….and I found the thin kraft paper from Target. My polka dot pattern was not perfect, but you really couldn’t even tell once the package was all wrapped up!  For the smaller polka dot paper….I used the same white ink pad, but I applied it using the bottom of a pencil eraser.  It didn’t go on as nicely as the stamp….but it got the job done.  If you are wrapping a lot of presents….this does get a little time consuming!  But it makes for a really beautiful presentation!  I finished off my packages with twine and wild berries.  You can see how I created my custom clay gift tags HERE.  Or you can also purchase them, for a short time, HERE on my Etsy store.

Let me know if you give this a try!

    these are sooo adorable! I love the idea of stamping on plain kraft paper. making gifts look amazing is so fun, and is so meaningful when you receive one that had a lot of effort go into it!

    How pretty! The white looks excellent on the craft paper and I love how you’ve added the black accent. And, of course, your wonderful clay gift tags. That is a present anyone would be excited to receive!
