Christmas Gift Wrapping Paper With Chalk Couture
Last year was the first year I used shipping paper to wrap Christmas gifts and I loved how versatile it was. It looks so different just by changing out a ribbon or adding snips of pine. You can see 5 different ideas here.
This year I decided to have fun with Chalk Couture and add pretty Christmas designs to the shipping paper. I love how it turned out! It literally took me about 10 minutes to wrap and chalk these two presents. Now I’m thinking I can use the same process for Valentine’s Day, birthdays, etc. Plus, the shipping paper is from the dollar store! I may never buy wrapping paper again 🙂 Here is what I used:
- Chalk Paste Candy Apple
- Chalk Paste Bright White
- Christmas Cheer Transfer
- Shipping Paper-Dollar Store
Simply wrap the gift with the shipping paper and place the Chalk Couture transfer on the paper.
This image shows the 4 easy steps for chalking:
For the first present, I used a classic red chalk and love how bright it is on the natural paper.
One of the things I like is it does not take much chalk to finish a project. Whatever you don’t use, you can scrape back into the container. I am a messy crafter, as you can see below. The other thing I love is, if you make a mistake just wet it and start over. Of course, not on paper, but on signs, wood, chalkboards.
I missed a little spot in the H, but I will go back in with a corner of the squeegee and dab a drop on it. But honestly, it does not have to be perfect. Handmade is just that-imperfections and all!
For the Joy transfer, I went with white and I can’t decide which I like better. I will admit I am not a fan of wrapping. But this I enjoyed. It really made it fun and I wanted to keep wrapping presents so I could continue chalking.
I hope this inspired you to decorate your own wrapping paper and for $1 a roll, you can experiment and really get creative.
