Brown paper as gift wrap!

This morning I had an idea to make some of my own gift wrap, I'm a total fan of brown paper.......the colouring is just like linen which is my absolute favourite, I wanted white spots and a big ribbon!
These are the goodies I used.......
I started by painting large circles all over the paper. I think that stars and snowflakes would have looked gorgeous......I'll have to find myself a stamp or two for that one!
Then I filled in the spaces with some smaller white circles.
Now I have some pretty gifts under my tree, what I really need to do is start the rest of my chrissy shopping.......so far I've got nothing for the family, although I have a list!
Hope all your Christmas preparations are coming along beautifully.

Brown paper is the best - I use it a lot. I must convert some to chrissy paper - great idea!
