Here is a super simple DIY. This is how I wrapped my baptism gift for my niece a week ago.
I dyed some nylon rope, back when I dip dyed my hammerhead t-shirt. I wanted to try out this heart knot on some material I had around the house, and this was what I came up with. In the tutorial I followed, the lady used two different colored hoodie strings, which looked a lot nicer than this, but this is what I had around. I still like the outcome, though. I want to try it on sturdier rope, and a better color.
I made my wrapping paper by cutting a cross out of a small potato. You could cut out any simple shape from the potato, and use this technique for any holiday.
I used the potato, and white paint to stamp the cross randomly on some craft paper. It dried super quick, and I was able to wrap my gift, a personalized treasure box.
The potato stamping technique is awfully useful. Great for when you need a stamp in a pinch. Especially if it's a stamp you wouldn't feel necessary to be a part of your regular used stamp collection. Hope ya'll found this useful too. Happy DIYing, chris.
