It's a Wrap! Holiday DIY

Happy holidays.jpg

This holiday DIY is a bit of a tradition. Our office tends to forget to wrap the boss's holiday gift prior to bringing it to the office. Over the years, we have developed a quick (and messy) way to make wrapping paper that looks half passable using craft paper and hand-made stamps. The following is a pictorial DIY for those finding themselves in a similar predicament !
