Today I share with you all a post that is giving rise to many emotions. First….shock that I cannot believe the holiday season will be here so soon….and SECOND…I AM JUST SO EXCITED to share with you all some really awesome brand new Heidi stuff! Because…that just always makes EVERYTHING better! Right?!? Whose with me?
OK, so let’s talk gift wrap. Better yet….DIY gift wrap!
These 4 rolls of brand new Heidi Swapp gift wrap come in bold vibrant colours just perfect for the holiday season. But you are right…they are plain. Hmmm….there HAS to be more to this right?
Of course there is! This is Heidi Swapp after all!
Enter paint. In a TON of colors. Yep…are they not just stunning. I know, how does one even choose?
But wait…what are we to do with paper rolls and paint? There HAS to be more….right?!?
YES! Say hello to probably my newest best friends for the holiday season!
Foam stamps…in these super cute icons. Truly the perfect addition for holiday packaging and decor.
When you bring them all together….the magic of the holiday “crafty” season truly begins!
So today I whipped up a quick little video demo/tutorial showcasing just how fabulous these new products are. Like anything, it takes a bit of practice, some playing and experimenting…but I know you will fall in love with creating your own personalized and customized gift wrap just like I have. I will be demoing the tree foam stamp in the video, but the technique and idea translates to all of the foam stamps in the collection. I don’t know about you but I just cannot wait to mix and match!
When working with the stamps and paint here are a few helpful tips:
*Begin with a “practice page”. Get comfortable with your stamp. Experiment with pressure and paint application before starting your actual project.
*Use a brush or sponge to apply the paint onto your stamp.
*Remember…”LESS is MORE”.
I just love how the stamps and paint make the wrapping paper come alive! This is such a fun DIY project…perfect for kids and crafters of all levels and ages.
Once my paper was stamped and dry I wrapped my gift and had fun adding on some additional ribbons, embellishments and tags that are also brand new Heidi Swapp and part of this collection. SO cute, right?!? When it comes to wrapping, it definitely is all about the extra special touches for sure.
I really hope you enjoyed this little “inside look” and post and maybe, just maybe….are getting a little bit in the holiday spirit? 😉
With DIY projects such as these…it really is too hard to resist!
