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


  • My son loves painting – we have a large roll of butchers paper and he goes crazy with lots of different colours. Once he is finished we cut it off and use it as wrapping paper. People loves receiving gifts with his paintings, most people are so careful when they unwrap it so the can keep it!!


  • I love doing this sort of art and crafts with my children. So much fun.


  • I remember doing this as a kid!


  • Very personal and creative,great idea! Thanks.


  • Great idea. Red and Green hand and foot prints for Christmas paper a special touch especially for Grandparents.


  • Creative indeed ! Just so nice to have those wee handprints immortalized in some way :) When my mum once got a visit from her grandchildren who lived in Africa at that time, she used window paint to keep their handprint on the windows for a very long time…loved it !
