Handy Dandy Holiday Wrap
When I saw this adorable Christmas Kitties stamp set from Becca Kay , I knew it would be perfect for some of my Christmas craft projects. I had a primary school class in mind and it was perfect for my projects.
With this set being a digital stamp set, I had the freedom to color the stamps any way I pleased. Also, I made coloring pages for the children in our class for a fun activity during party day. They love to see their names personalized, so I put their names with the adorable graphics.
I also wanted to customize wrapping paper for teacher’s gifts. I wrapped up a gift card in a small box and coordinated my kitty theme made by Becca Kay’s fun set. I chose several of the graphics in her set, and colored them digitally in Photoshop. I placed them along with my “Merry Christmas” wording on a small canvas, and saved the design as a pattern. Next, I just filled an 8×10″ canvas with the pattern, printed it and had the perfect little wrapping paper. I wrapped up the box, added a ribbon and my little project was complete.
