black and white wrapping paper


As I have mentioned in the past, I never buy wrapping paper- in fact, it has been over 15 years since I purchased a roll of wrapping paper from the store! Instead, it has become a holiday tradition for me to make my own and over the years I have come up with all kinds of really fun, easy and FAST ways to create one of a kind wrapping. While black and white is not the first color combo you think of at the holidays, it is a really graphic and dynamic scheme especially for wrapping.

I always keep a couple of rolls of butcher paper on hand (especially during the holidays). You can find my favorite black butcher paper HERE it has a nice glossy finish that looks like traditional wrapping paper. 

Anything white will work on the surface- acrylic paint, paint pens, correction pens, 3-D paint, etc.

If you have the time filling the surface with pattern is a beautiful way to create artistic wrapping paper. I like to use a paint pen and simply draw all over the surface filling all of the space.


If you don't have lots of time using paint and simple marks or even stamping is a fast and effective way to fill the surface.


The result is really BOLD, dynamic and one of a kind wrapping that is certain to add a handmade touch to any gift!
