Get all wrapped up!
19th December 2015
Have you started wrapping your Christmas presents yet? How about creating your own unique wrapping paper design! Follow the simple step-by-step instructions below and see what pretty patterns you can make...
|1. You will need a large cookie cutter and a potato that is bigger than the cutter.|
|2. Carefully cut a slice from the middle of the potato. Press the cookie cutter into the slice.|
|3. Push out the shape you have cut. You may need some help with the last two steps.|
|4. Dab both sides of the potato shape on some kitchen paper towels to dry it.|
|5. Press a fork into the shape. This will stop you from getting too messy when you print.|
|6. Pour two or three small patches of paint onto an old newspaper. Do them close together.|
|7. Dip the potato shape into the middle of the paint, then press it onto a piece of paper.|
|8. Dip the shape into the paint again, then print it. Fill the paper with lots of printed shapes.|
Finally, you can wrap presents in your printed paper and tie a shiny ribbon around them.
