DIY Polka Dot Wrapping Paper

Making your own gift wrap saves money and gives your gift the perfect touch!

DIY Polka Dot Wrapping Paper is perfect for the holidays!  Now that you are set with loads of cute printable tags from last week’s post, try adding hand stamped wrapping paper!  Good, sturdy wrapping paper is hard to come by that doesn’t cost an arm and leg, but this easy DIY is super inexpensive and fun to do!  Another great idea is to stamp plain brown or white lunch bags and create some cute one of a kind gift bags for small trinkets or school party treats.
