DIY Make Your Own Kraft Paper

I’ve been really loving kraft paper lately for gift wrapping.  I love the homemade DIY feeling that it gives the gifts.  I bought a roll of kraft paper and I thought it made the perfect blank canvas.  I bought stamps and ink at Paper Presentation here in New York and made my own kraft paper.  I chose a floral motive stamp with hot pink ink and a butterfly stamp with pale blue ink.  I didn’t have a plan, I just stamped away.  Luckily, there have been a lot of gifts to wrap lately so I used the kraft paper I made.  My friends really appreciated that I took the extra effort to make the paper.  It was so easy to make and I believe it gave an extra special touch.
