Wrap It Up Gift Paper

Wrap It Up Gift Paper craft

Print your own colorful, original gift wrap paper!

  • 1.

    What gift will you wrap with the paper you create? Think of a design that fits the person or holiday.

  • 2.

    First, you will print a pattern of shapes on your wrapping paper. Outline your printing block with a Crayola® Colored Pencil on a recycled foam produce tray. Draw areas inside the shape to cut out, too. Use pointed Crayola Scissors to carefully cut out your design.

  • 3.

    Cut a second produce tray into a back that is slightly larger than your design. With Crayola School Glue, attach the cut-out to the backing. Air dry.

  • 4.

    Cover your art area with newspaper. Place a slightly damp paper towel on a third produce tray. Add a few drops of your favorite colors of Crayola Washable Kid's Paint to the paper towel. Spread the paint with a Crayola Paint Brush.

  • 5.

    Use newsprint or other paper that is large enough to wrap your gift. Press your foam printing block into the paint. Apply even pressure so all of the raised, cut-out areas pick up paint. Press the printing block to your paper. Repeat to make a pattern. Air dry flat.

    Use Crayola Gel Markers to outline your prints and fill in any empty spaces.
