PW2 (dee.i.y} doily wrapping paper



i never have wrapping paper when i need it and it drives me nuts so i thought up a way to print my own DOILY (hallelujah!) wrapping paper:



* a doily (this awesome orange one is from Widge! x)
* rolling pin
* brown paper
* washable white paint (my doily is still orange)
* press n seal. (sure, you could use ordinary plastic wrap but where's the fun in that?? this stuff is Serious Fun)



cover your rolling pin in press n seal (or plastic wrap - yawn~). the purpose of this is to keep your rolling pin clean.
whip stitch your doily in place over top of the plastic covering.

liberally apply paint
and rock n roll!

pretty, no?

this package is headed to the talented Rosa-May for the Vintage Kitchen Swap...hope she likes it!!

(ps. if you read in google reader you will have got this twice...deepest (embarrassed) apologies, trying to be organised and got a little eagerish-beaverish!)
