What You'll Need

  • Easy Cut Block Printing material
  • Carving set
  • Marker/pencil
  • Ink pads
  • Ink remover
  • Paper towels
  • Paper
  • Exacto knife

Step 1: Carve Your Design

Draw your design on the carving material. Use an Xacto knife or carving utensils to cut out the design and its embellishments. Remember that the ink will only lay on the flat parts of your design, so carve away areas you want to leave blank.

Step 2: Cut Out Stamps

Cut around each of your stamps; the closer you cut to the design, the easier it will be to see where the inked design will go on the paper. 

Step 3: Add Ink

Use the inkpads to add color to each stamp, and create a custom pattern on a piece of wrapping paper. You can find relatively inexpensive rolls of blank paper that are perfect for stamping wrapping larger gifts; for smaller gifts, you can use regular printer paper. 

Step 4: Add Embellishments

Attach a small circular stamp to the end of a dowel rod (or use a pencil eraser!) to add differently-colored embellishments to the paper.
