This is an example of a gift I wrapped with a brown lunch paper bag that was given to me when I bought wine at Sprouts. The stencil was made from an online order of holiday cards from Shutterfly and the rest of the supplies I already had at home.

You can recreate this concept not only for the holidays, but for any occasion. For example, make a stencil of a balloon when it's a birthday present, or anything you can draw and cut out from the stencil paper.

Total Time: 20 minutes

Supplies:

  • thin cardboard
  • brown paper bag
  • ruler
  • pen
  • X-acto knife
  • tape
  • stamp inkpad
  • sponge brush
  • glue stick
