2013 Christmas Printables – Colour Your Own Wrapping Paper.

2013 Christmas Printables - colour your own wrapping paper!

I am a terrible wrapper.

I want to wrap beautiful gifts, with fancy ribbons and extra embellishments. I want people to ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ over the wrapping before they even find out how awesome the gift is. I want to be a good wrapper, but I’m not.

My paper is never straight, I can’t fold nice corners, sticky tape hates me, and when I try and make my gifts look fancy they just end up looking silly.

So this year I am enlisting help to make my gift wrapping looks super awesome… I am getting my kids to colour in the wrapping paper!

What could be more ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ worthy than individually coloured gifts, no two the same!?!

You can get in on the secret too! Download my ‘colour your own wrapping paper’pdf here.

Then all you need to do is print and colour and you are ready to wrap some gorgeous little gifts!

Are you a good wrapper??

This is fantastic. I’ll be printing some, but I also think this would be great in the classroom on those last couple of days when everything is a shambles as you clean and organise the classroom.
