How to Make Handprint Gift Wrap
September 24, 2008
Add that extra "touch" and make a gift more personal with this handprint gift wrap craft.
- long roll of paper or sheets
- trays for paint
- paint brush (optional)
Roll out a large section from a long roll of paper or lay out a large sheet of paper. I like to use the rolls from the ends of the newspaper that our local newspaper sells cheap.
Use different trays to set out different colored paints. I save the foam trays that come under groceries and use them for this, or you could use paper plates.
Either let the child dip their hand in the paint, or paint it on their hands using a paint brush. If using a brush, the foam kind works really well.
Randomly stamp handprints all over the paper. You may want to allow some time to dry between colors if you don't want them to mix too much.
When completely dry, roll it up and save for the perfect gift wrap to accompany any special gift! I save the rolls to purchased gift wrap which comes in handy to store the homemade gift wrap.
Variation: Try this with feet too!
