step 1
Lay your kraft paper out on a flat surface.

Tape it down if necessary.

Measure the box that you will be wrapping to make enough gift wrap for your box.

step 2
Choose which stencil you want to use and lay it out on your paper.

Using your acrylic paint and a sponge pouncer start filling in your stencil on your paper.

If youre painting a large area, be careful when moving your stencil to make sure your pattern lines up evenly.

Let the paint dry completely.Holiday Gift Wrap DIY Zig ZagHoliday Gift Wrap DIY DotsHoliday Gift Wrap DIY Stars
