Print your own wrapping paper this Christmas!

Who remembers potato printing as a child? Well this is a more grown up version where you can give your presents that simple but incredibly effective personal touch. To build up the festive spirit you can even get the kids involved! We've used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and stencils to decorate basic brown paper into something quite wonderful. So sit down this evening, pick up a brush, and have some down time.. 

We selected a Christmas colour palette consisting of Emperor's Silk, Antibes Green, Pure White, Louis Blue, Graphite, Arles. - To create both your traditional Christmas colour scheme that evokes fuzzy memories of sitting by the fire with eggnog as well as a modern winter wonderland (Frozen-esque) under our tree this year! We know that Elsa would love some Louis Blue and Ana would be wearing Antibes Green! 

We took a selection of stencils from the Annie Sloan collection including; Oak leaves, Branches, Coral (which we think looks like reindeer antlers), Circles and even Nymph (to which you can paint on santa hats or elf ears). Plus also our fabulous font stencils from Dovetails Vintage from back home in the UK! - Cheers guys, we love them! 

Fyi, Chalk Paint on brown kraft paper will not need to be waxed or protected. The only extra layer you'll need is a big ribbon or two!
