4 ways to have fun with potato stamps, decorated family photos and cardboard tubes for wrapping gifts

Stamp a box
Give a plain box from the $2 shop a personal touch with potato stamps. Use cookie cutters to cut out stars or bells and dip them into paint. We used test pots of Resene Dizzy Lizzy. Works on plain paper too.

Use cardboard tubes covered with tissue paper and decorated with sparkles, tinsel and beads to give little gifts big appeal.

Photo wrap
For a truly unique wrapping, scan family photos in black and white, let the kids go crazy creating santa hats and funny faces in paint on the computer, print in A3 - or A4 for those little gifts.

Rudolph bag
This is ideal wrapping for gift cards, vouchers or CDs. Turn a lunch bag into an envelope, add googly eyes, a pompom nose, ears and antlers. Eyebrows and a smile can be drawn on with a marker, or use a black pipe cleaner and a gluegun.
