  • You can get stuck with having no wrapping paper. A great idea!

  • Also try using different colours for a different effect!


  • Stamps would be cool, all different shapes and colours

    • Grandparents would love seeing what their grandchildren have made


  • I’ve done this and had it done for me. As a proud grandparents. I loved it


  • when my son was little I used to do this, it is an amazing idea. but now that he’s older, he doesn’t paint as much.


  • I cant wait to try this its such a good idea and so creative.


  • I did this recently and made a stack of different ones with the kids, it is great to grab one out and use it – makes the kids feel special and the person receiving generally loves it too!


  • We love to do this with all the art miss 5 brings home from kinder, she thinks it’s really special.


  • I really appreciate nice or creative wrapping paper..sometimes I treasure it along with the gift. I can see myself making this in the future.


  • I just saw this in my newsfeed and the red splotches on the white background made me think of Halloween. You could also make this a Halloween craft (maybe for older kids!) of bloody hand prints – if that’s not too much for your kids.


  • I have done this with my with daughter for the last few years. She loves doing and it gives more of a personal touch to a present.


  • Very personal, as special as the gift in some cases.
