Wrapping paper

If you’re not particularly handy when it comes to crafts, but have over zealous grandchildren, then making your own wrapping paper is a great way of saving money and keeping them busy!

No special tools are required, just some old brown paper, coloured texters or pencils, and a child’s imagination. Let them loose, sit back and relax, as they create masterpieces that will delight friends and family as much as the gift that it covers.
