HOW TO PRINT YOUR OWN CHRISTMAS WRAPPING PAPER & TAGS

Creating your own prints is a really fun thing to do on the lead up to Christmas, especially if said printing involves wrapping paper and gift tags. We’re going to show you two methods – a repeat print and a multi directional print. Using our customer favourite Kraft wrapping paper (you might know it better as brown parcel wrap) and white and black inks.

So, first of all, you’re going to need this little lot and the great thing is, you may well already have some of these lying around at home, making it’s a really cheap way of creating your very own personalised wrapping paper.

Step 2

Depending on the design you’ve chosen (individual stamp or tiled pattern) transfer the design on the lino using tracing paper. Trace over design, then turn the tracing paper over, place onto the lino and rub over the lines until your tracing has transferred.

Step 3

Cut out your design with either scissors if you are creating a shape like our handsome reindeer on the right or with the lino cutting tool if creating a pattern.

Have fun playing with different combinations and designs! We added a cheeky pom pom to Rudolph’s nose on the black print. So cute.
