What you’ll need

Champagne Cork

Black Marker

Stanley Knife

White Stamp Pad

Roll of Brown Paper

Scissors

Wide Water Colour Brush

White Water Colour Paint

Dish (for water and paint)

Ribbon, Raffia or Twine

Tape

Method

Step one: Using the marker and cork, draw a shape onto the flat side of the cork. We chose a simple star, but you could experiment with drawing leaves, circles or letters.

Step two: When the marker is dry, carefully cut out the outside area of the shape using a stanley knife.

Step three: Cut out some brown paper for the required size for your gift. Randomly stamp your shape onto the paper using the white stamp ink.

Step four: In a small dish mix a 5c size piece of water colour paint with 35ml of water.

Step five: Cut a 4-5cm wide strip of paper (long enough to wrap around your gift). Using the wide brush, dip the brush in water/watercolour mix, then using swift strokes brush lightly onto the strip of paper.

Step six: Allow both sets of paper to dry and when ready, wrap your gift with some bright coloured twine, raffia or ribbon.
