This is the second to last tutorial in the Wrap it Up series, but it’s an extra good one and includes sparkle and kraft paper! Enjoy! Oh and did you see yesterday’s tutorial about wrapping with worn out stockings?!
Hi C.R.A.F.T friends!! I’m Sarah from Sarah M. Dorsey Designs and I’m so excited and honored that Jamie asked me to participate in her Wrap It Up series! Today I’m sharing a few wrapping ideas using kraft paper, adhesive and glitter. Let’s face it, glitter is messy, but to me, it wouldn’t be Christmas without it! I love the shine and depth that it adds – So worth a little extra vacuuming!
It’s super simple… Here’s how I did it!
First, I cut a piece of brown kraft paper and laid pieces of painters tape at a 45 degree angle. To space it, I placed two small pieces of tape as I went to make sure it was even.
I sprayed a light coat of spray adhesive, sprinkled glitter and then removed the tape.
For the polka dots, I used round glue dots and then sprinkled on glitter. I wasn’t too picky with the spacing, so it was little random – life’s too short to measure here. Thanks for the inspiration Brittany! Check out her amazing customized Ikea frames here.
I picked up some pom pom yarn from Ollie’s – it makes the perfect ribbon!
