I started with some distress inks and a craft tag then sprinkled some water droplets on it. This removed the color and mimicked a snowfall effect.
I placed the Snowman stencil over my tag, masked off the bits I didn’t want to paint. Then using heavy body acrylic I painted the hat and snowlan.
I removed the stencil and painted in the snowman to make him solid.
I placed the Snowman stencil back on and painted in the details using Distress Oxides and acrylic.
For some added sparkle & dimension, I accented my snowman with snowflake paste.
For the wrapping paper, I used the Snow Storm Stencil and Distress Oxides.
I added some ribbon and my package is ready to go under the tress, come holiday time.
The wonderful thing about using stencils to create tags & wrapping paper is the versatility you get from just a couple of stencils. Here I created an entirely different look, using the same process, but the Christmas Poinsettias stencil.
Creating your own gift wrap is a project that the kids have fun with too, so don’t be shying about getting them to join in on the fun! If you don’t have time to make your own wrapping paper this year, you can create custom wrapping paper online instead.
