June proves to be a productive month for me and I love when this busy mama found some time to create...even if it's a short while. A good friend of mine gave birth to her second child and I know she loves packaging as much as I do. Ever since I started cardmaking way back in 2008, I haven't bought a single sheet of wrapping paper. I much rather create my own packaging and make the recipient feel extra special. Inspired by the sea foam acrylic paint I had for a while, I decided to create painted stripes on the kraft paper. Before I start painting, I took out my washi tape and simply tape on the kraft surface to act like a mask leaving 0.8" space in between. Then I apply a thin layer of acrylic paint on the entire surface, making sure that each painted stripes are even. Then I slowly peel off the washi tape to reveal the unpainted area. Tada.....a personalized package done under 30minutes. I hope you enjoy this! I'm planning to make a series of gift wrapping ideas on this blog. What you think?
