DIY Wrapping Paper

Fangirls, my boyfriend’s and my first anniversary is coming up in less than a month, and since we’re going to the places that Steven Universe is based off of, I thought it would be best to have presents that were themed accordingly. I also wanted wrapping paper and a card within the theme too, and I decided this too late to order some wrapping paper to bring it before my trip down this past weekend, so I had to make it myself.



I only did a small amount, because I’m not a super great artist, nor do I have a ton of patience, so I made just enough for 3 of my 4 presents. It was simple, but the pattern I decided on was a bit frustrating. All I needed was a paper bag, a pair of scissors, and some colored pencils. I started by cutting the bottom of the paper bag off, then down the side of the bag.


After that, I ironed the bag on medium heat with no steam. This isn’t a necessary step, but I wanted to be sure the paper was as flat as possible. After that I just drew my design over and over. Like I said before, it was frustrating and tedious, but I’m rather excited about giving my gifts, and keeping the theme awesome.
