homemade holiday gift wrap.

I finished making my homemade holiday gift wrap yesterday, and I think I have found my newest favorite Christmas tradition. It's like decorating Christmas cookies, but a far healthier option. :) Aaron loves the one with the black Christmas tree pattern. This homemade wrapping paper will make gift giving that much more special this year. <3

**I cut the tree stamp out of a foam sheet, and used a black ink pad to stamp it on the paper. The red & green patterns were done just in acrylic paint, and the brown paper came in a 30-inch roll from Target.
