Last week Noah and I made a fun Christmas garland and the free printable we created gave you a bit of a sneak peak into this years Christmas Printables.
The designs used for the garland will feature in many of our 2014 Christmas Printables, and today we used them to create some fun ‘colour your own’ free printable Christmas wrapping paper!
Our ‘colour your own’ free printable Christmas wrapping paper was a hit last year, with my kids, with everyone who received gifts with one of a kind gift wrap, and with my readers, so of course I had to come up with a new version this year!
This year I have created the wrapping paper in A3 size. Those of you lucky enough to have access to an A3 printer can now print bigger sheets to wrap bigger presents. Those of us who don’t have any A3 printer can still print these at home, just make sure to select your paper size and choose ‘fit’ or ‘shrink to fit’ from the printer menu. It prints just fine on an A4 sheet of paper.
You can also choose ‘poster’ from the printer menu and the wrapping paper will print out at A3 size using four sheets of A4 paper, you can then trip and tape these sheets together. Or you can take the files to your local printer and have them print some out for you.
Then all you need to do is colour them in!
These also work well as drawing sheets for the kids – patterns to colour, stars to design and Christmas trees to decorate. Print out a few and keep the kids entertained while you are cooking up a Christmas feast!
Keep an eye out next week for a full colour version of this free printable Christmas wrapping paper… for when you are tired of colouring in!
