From Lova: "I love stamps and today I decided to make gift wrapping using some stamps I recently bought. I used mulberry paper, which looks great with the stamps and also is great for wrapping. Simple patterns look great and it doesn't matter if the marks aren't perfectly aligned, or dark."

1.Choose your stamps, ink and paper. 2.Stamp out a simple repeating pattern onto your paper. (it's sometimes a good ide to test out your stamps and patterns on scrap paper first!) 3.Allow the ink to dry. 4.Wrap your gifts! 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25.


it doesn't matter if the marks aren't perfectly aligned, or if not all your stamps come out perfectly.  It's what makes the paper look handmade and special!
