Pencil Wrapping Paper

il_fullxfull.775067699_6bih

Ever since I offered the printable wrapping papers in the shop, I have been fascinated by the many uses you all have given them!  But let’s be honest, in the ideal paper size for them (large format) it is not always easy to get yourself to Staples or any other office supply shop to print.

I have noticed bunches of BEAUTIFUL printable wrapping papers in small sizes around the web and on Etsy, that were practical for home printing.  But I was reluctant to use them because of how “small” the paper would be.  I mean…what uses can you possibly have for wrapping that small?  So I took the challenge of exploring this myself and have a concrete answer.  And you know what the results were?  Small wrapping paper IS really useful!  And to print on the fly without having to buy a new role of paper for a quick present, presented itself to be quite a total delight.

I needed to wrap a couple of teacher gifts.  One was a self inked stamp from the shop and the other was a cute stack of thank you cards.  Both of the items were small but not tiny (the cards came in a 5 x 7 x 1.5 box).  I made a pencil pattern for the wrapping paper and some matching black cards and also belly bands to wrap the entire gift.  The black cards were printed on a black and white laser printer and the pattern was printed on a home ink jet printer on regular copy paper (the cheap stuff) BUT (and very important, pay attention to this):  I made sure to set the printing quality to “highest” on the print dialogue window. Seriously–a beautiful, vibrant print on cheap copy paper.  I was super impressed on how awesome and satisfying wrapping these were.

I am making these available in the shop.  The belly band and cards have editable text boxes for personalization.

Oh and one tip!  I printed these on 2 letterhead sheets and added double sided tape (or you can use a tape roller) to join 2 sheets to make an 11 x 17 sheet for a larger wrapping paper zise !

new parent signature stamp

02_rubber+stamp+stamps+personalized+cute+kawaii+name+address+self+inking+wood+ink+scrapbook+gift+personalized+idea.psd

 

Today I ordered this stamp to be made for my daughter’s teacher. I thought it would be so cute as a self-inked stamp since teachers would use this all of the time.  Teachers can use this to make sure we (parents) clearly see if a paper they send home, needs a parent signature! I’ve made it available for purchase in the shop as a perfect end of the year teacher gift! Free shipping for all U.S. orders through May 31, 2015.  See this listing here on Etsy.
