Get your creative juices flowing for this wrapping paper by pinning a few of your favorite simple patterns on Pinterest. Get out some scratch paper and try out some designs you want to make on your paper.
Roll out your solid-colored paper, and place something heavy on the ends to keep it from rolling up. Then shake up your gold paint pen and draw your design on your paper. We went with basic swirls, but you could do anything that strikes your fancy. Draw some hearts or some elaborate flowers, or get out your acrylic paint and make thick stripes. When you’re done, make sure to let it dry before you wrap your gift.
Top your newly created paper with a personalized touch – a monogram topper! You could even write on the back to make it a 2-in-1 gift topper and card.
Either cut or purchase a paper letter. We used the Cricut Explorer™ to cut our letters. Then add Scotch Double-sided Tape to the top of the letter. Slice any tape that is hanging over the edges with a Scotch® Utility Knife. Sprinkle your letter with glitter and gently spread it with your finger. Remove any extra glitter.
Well, hello, glittery B! Cute, right?
Scotch® Tape is amazing. You can seriously MacGyver it into so many things. We’ve made necklaces out of Scotch® Washi Tape and vases for fake flowers out of Scotch® Packaging Tape. And now we’re going to make the most adorable Scotch® Brand gift toppers of all time.
