Have you ever purchased wrapping paper from TJ Maxx / Homegoods before? It's some of the BEST wrapping paper I've ever found. Whenever I stop there, I always stock up. I also always keep simple white wrapping paper on hand, because I feel that it can be used for any occasion.

Another wrapping staple I always keep on hand is a roll of kraft butcher paper. I think it's actually shipping paper, because I bought it from the office supply store, but I've had the same roll for almost a year now, and have used it a TON (see here, here, and here)!

I've got a few wrapping projects in the books so far this year, but this is one of my favorites! 

It's very simple to achieve, and it costs VERY little. All you need is some butcher paper and a sharpie, and you've got yourself some *designer* wrapping paper. 

Supplies:

Step 1: Cut a large piece of butcher paper, then use a ruler to mark a very light line diagonally down the piece of paper. Mark until you reach the end of the paper.

Step 2: Using your faux calligraphy skills you picked up from my calligraphy class, and write away! I used terms like "merry Christmas" and "merry and bright". Once you're finished, erase the pencil marks.

Step 3: Wrap!
