Newspaper Christmas Wrapping Paper

This time of the year is is busy busy!  There’s lots of decorating, shopping, meal prepping, traveling etc.  One thing that usually get’s left till the last minute is wrapping the gifts.  Wrapping paper doesn’t have to be a roll of paper from the store!  There’s many creative ways to present a gift.  Luckly, this month’s Junk Revision Challenge is just that!

This project was inspired by my daughter’s teacher.  Last week, we made wrapping paper and cute little name tags using their thumb print!  It’s the most adorable thing ever!  Instead of using white paper, like we did at school, we upcycled newspaper!

Here’s what you’ll need!  A cute little toddler (okay, anyone can do this!), cookie cutters (we grabbed some from the Dollar Store), paint and newspaper.  Let’s get going!

Eva always wants to paint.  I had no problem getting her involved with this project.  Plus, I think it makes it extra sentimental.  Maybe we can wrap grandma and grandpa’s present with it.  So cool!

Make sure to move to cookie cutter around in the paint.  You want to cover the whole cutter.

Miss Eva thinks these are HER presents.  It’s time to hide them!  Each day is a battle of, “me open present mom?”

You could mix colors – the options are endless.  I only had red on hand!
