In addition the the gift wrap we printed with oranges, I also used the string block method to print some seasonal gift wrap, bags and tags.
What we used
Home made string blocks
Brown paper and gift bags
An old book
What we did
- Use the same method as the flower string block we made in the summer but with a more seasonal design http://www.eco-create.co.uk/find/flower-string-printing-block/, we went for holly and a robin
- Print in a geometric pattern until the paper or gift bag is covered. For the holly design we dry brushed to colour in.
- For the gift tags we printed on the page of an old damaged book and backed with card. Punch a hole and attach either raffia or twine.
