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


  • I recently wrapped a present for my husband with one of our toddler’s paintings. Husband loved it.


  • 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.


  • 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.
