It happens to me all the time:  I forget about a birthday party until the last minute, and when I go to wrap my hastily-made gift, I realize that the only wrapping paper I have on hand is Christmas-themed.  Ever the clever one, Jeromina from Paper, Plate, and Plane came up with a solution appropriate for any event:  date stamp wrapping paper!  Make custom wrapping paper specifically for a birthday, bridal shower, baby shower, or any holiday or occasion by stamping kraft paper with the date of the event.  You'll never be lacking the right wrapping paper ever again!  [how to make date stamp custom wrapping paper]

Project estimate:

  • Kraft paper, $1
  • Date rubber stamp, on hand or $1 and up
  • Ink pad (if date stamp is not self-inking), on hand or $1 and up

Total: $1 and up

    Such a good idea and looks fantastic.

    I bought a date stamp just because, and I never actually found a use for it. I’ll definitely get it out and used now. Thanks

    stock up on wrapping paper the day after christmas- buy all the plain colors or ones that don’t look christmas-y. then you always have paper on hand the rest of the year!
