Making you own hand-lettered wrapping paper is a wonderful way to create pretty packages that are both easy and affordable. Write a love note to hand to your dearest for Valentine’s day, encouraging wishes for a couple getting hitched, or a congratulatory note for a loved one’s birthday party. The concept is especially nice when directed toward a specific individual, but you could also use it to address a specific celebration on favors and party goods. Nothing is better than a kind letter of love on top of a thoughtful gift.

All you need is a large piece of butcher paper, white craft paper, or in a pinch – a paper grocery bag! Using a chalk pencil will the give the paper an impressionist look, and a final spritz of hair spray will hold it all in place.
