This year, for the first time, I wanted to try making our own wrapping paper. I don’t think we’ve ever tried stamping with cookie cutters either! So we combined both to make Cookie Cutter Stamped Wrapping Paper. I remembered I found this Wilton Holiday Grippy Cookie Cutters, Set of 4 on clearance after the holidays. They’re perfect for stamping with paint since they’re plastic and have the nice thick edge around the top.
We turned them over and used that side to dip in the paint. I often use small paper plates for crafts – we go through a lot of them between snack time and crafts – but they’re perfect for a small amount of paint and the cookie cutter stamps.
I have a plastic bell cookie cutter that we used too, but it isn’t apart of the Wilton set. We worked with these colors and shapes:
- brown/gingerbread man
I added glitter paint to the yellow and the green for a bit of sparkle.
I was given a large roll of paper so I cut large pieces off the roll. We took turns and each child had their own time at the table to make their wrapping paper. I love how colorful tempera paint is and how quickly it dries.
Painting with cookie cutters is a quick, easy holiday activity that everyone enjoyed.
The gifts looked wonderful wrapped!
The cookie cutters we used are on sale on Amazon and you may be able to use them locally on clearance as well. They’re great for more than one use!
