Hi! I’m Mique (like the Mouse) from Thirty Handmade Days. I love all of Amy’s amazing ideas and I’m super excited to be visiting. At 30days my favorite things to share are- printables, recipes and gift ideas.
Today its’ all about what to wrap some of your gifts in. Maybe you’ve seen some chalkboard inspired projects lately? I thought it’d be fun to make “chalkboard” wrapping paper.
At the beginning of the year I stumbled upon an idea to have designs on the over sized blueprint machine. I’ve since done all kinds of projects:
You can go to pretty much any copy and print center to do these types of projects. Some places you can email files to, others you can download them onto their sites. I’ve used Fed Ex Kinko’s and Office Max. They charge per sheet of paper and by the size. I’ve gotten a 24″x18″ print for $1.99. The one catch is- it has to be black and white. But there are so many possibilities!
To print your own Chalkboard Christmas Wrapping paper, download the file. Then send it to your local copy and print shop.
The full 24″x24″ sheet looks like this:
Pick it up from the shop and get busy wrapping!
Hope you have a very Merry Christmas.
Stop by 30days and say hi!
