White Stamp Pad
Roll of Brown Paper
Wide Water Colour Brush
White Water Colour Paint
Dish (for water and paint)
Ribbon, Raffia or Twine
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.
