DIY Fern Stamped Wrapping Paper_Mottes Blog (1)

I’ve always loved the look of packages wrapped in brown paper, and it makes a great jumping-off point for lots of creative DIY gift wrap ideas. It’s the perfect time of year for this particular idea from Germany-based blogger Motte, who used a basic printmaking technique to make paper with a nature-inspire motif! The delicate fern leaves make a beautiful, intricate pattern when repeated. You can also experiment with other kinds of leaves. (Just watch out for poison ivy!) [how to make fern stamped wrapping paper]
