Roller Stamping Wrapping Paper DIY


Hey there! Guess what? It's the first Friday of the month and today's the day I bring you a fun themed craft to share at Bring On the Crafts Blog Hop! 
The theme for this month is Stamps!

 Have you run out of fancy wrapping paper? Here's a fun way to make your very own decorative wrapping paper using a rolling pin as a stamp! Sounds cool doesn't it? Perfect for this month's Bring on the Crafts theme! 

And you just need a rolling pin - found this small silicone one at Walmart for $2.44, some lacy foam ribbon trim from the dollar store, cling wrap or paper, glue, acrylic craft paint, brush, and craft paper. No expensive tools to use or buy!
Roller stamping is so easy to do! First by covering the rolling pin with cling wrap to protect the surface so you can use it again and again! You can also use paper or cardstock to wrap the roller for protection.
Next, add on strips of the foam lacy ribbon trim, matching the pattern and .  .  .
gluing the ends together around the rolling pin. It should be centered and I didn't realize this is not! Oops!
Then, brush on acrylic paint using a paint brush or foam brush over all of the foam ribbon trim.
And begin rolling on the design on to the craft paper. It's best to use two hands but I had to hold my camera to take this picture! Lol!
Have fun roller stamping the designs on - using different patterns, going in different directions, or using multiple paints! I loved the look of the lavender paint color, so I stuck with just that!

Once you're finished with roller stamping the paper, the foam ribbon and cling wrap can be easily pulled off for another project!
Be sure to let the paint dry completely on the paper!
What a fun way to make unique, one of a kind wrapping paper!

I also used the lacy foam ribbon trim to wrap around the wrapping paper for a complimentary touch - twirling it around to make a rose bud for the center bow!
Have fun making your own personal roller stamping wrapping paper!

What an adorable project to share for this month's Stamp theme at Bring on the Crafts Blog Hop!

  10. Hi Gail, I like making my very unique gift wrapping paper, too. Never used a rolling stamp though. I love that the design you stamped on matches the ribbon and I will definitely pin this to my gift wrapping ideas board.
