Using Rubber Stamps: Wrapping Paper

Martha Stewart Weddings, Summer 2001

Enclose gifts for your wedding party, or favors for your guests, in handmade wrapping paper covered in impressions made with a square rubber stamp. But don't save this project for the last minute, when wedding preparations will be filling your every spare moment; paper can be prepared in advance. For a uniform pattern, stamp a large sheet of paper repeatedly with the same stamp, leaving a small space between each impression. Or stamp just the center of a piece of wrapping paper. If your box and stamp are the same size, you can just stamp the top. If the box is larger than the stamp, the pattern can trail down the sides. A stamp rolling pin also makes an attractive pattern. We applied several different colors to a sheet of white paper to create a muted design. Store stamped pages flat.
