Rolling Stamp Wrapping Paper

When I saw these little foam shapes in a package at the store, I had the idea to use my rolling pin to create this rolling stamp wrapping paper. It turned out to be a really fun project with really cute results!

If you know us, you'll recognize that these are photos from an old project- we did this TEN years ago!

Rolling Stamp Wrapping Paper

Here are the supplies needed and my tips for how to do this project:


Materials Needed


- Rolling Pin
- Craft Paper
- Wax Paper
- Foam Shapes
- Paint
- Paint Brush

How to Make Your Rolling Stamp


I started by wrapping my rolling pin safely in wax paper. I didn't want to paint my rolling pin- I'd need it for baking later! ;)

Then I hot-glued the foam shapes to the wax paper on the rolling pin.


Stamping Your Wrapping Paper


Ken helped the girls spread white paint onto the shapes with a large paint brush. 

Be careful not to make it too globby or your shapes won't show up very well.


Ken helped them take turns rolling the homemade "stamp" over some brown craft paper.



After a few turns, we had a nice big roll of homemade "snowflake" wrapping paper.

Such a fun project, & the result was so cute! :)

  6. OMG - this is brilliant! I've always wanted to make my own stamped paper, but the thought of hand stamping over and over and over kept me from doing it.

    1. Thank you Maureen! :) Haha, very true- the individual stamping could take a long time if you're making a decent amount!

  8. That is such an awesome idea. I prefer things like this to store bought stuff. This is the kind of paper that's almost a gift itself.
