DSC_0197 For today's outfit I styled my latest DIY project which was this triangle stamped top. As I mentioned in the tutorial, the print still allows the top to remain a neutral so I paired it with these colored BDG jeans from Urban Outfitters and then just mixed in the finishing pieces in more neutral tones. I'm also loving wearing these heels in my outfit posts lately for the added height, but let's be honest, I'm off to the dentist today and you know I won't be wearing these there!

DIY_Printed Giftwrap

holidiy 4 intro I have made printed gift wrap in past years, and wanted to make some more than was specifically customized for the person receiving the gift. I made a dreamcatcher inspired wrapping and also a music inspired paper. I have also made tags to really complete the look and add a special touch. I hope you enjoy this tutorial!

To create the feather print paper, I simply freehand painted some feathers onto craft paper with black acrylic paint. I suggest mixing the paint with a little water so that you can paint more freely.

For the dreamcatcher tag, I used a store bought round paper tag, and drew on the dreamcatcher pattern with an ink pen. I added some beads in red.

For the feathers, I used the ink pen to draw feathers onto the craft paper. I then simply cut them out and taped them to the back of the tag where I added the to/from message.

Here is how the gifts look wrapped! I finished them off with some red raffia for a rustic feel that matched the red beads.

For the music inspired paper, I used this large sheet music stamp that I had around from a past project from Michael's. Instead of using ink, I used the same acrylic paint and water mixture to create the pattern.

I repeated the stamp until I had a paper printed with music notes. You could also wrap a gift in sheet music!

For the customized tag, I folded a sheet of red paper in half lengthwise and sketched out an electric guitar. I cut this out, added the message, and attached to the gift!

Here is the music inspired wrapping! These packages were finished off with a festive plaid bow.
