Handmade Wrapping Paper {Made by Little Hands}

After making such a special Father's Day gift for Jonathan this year, I wanted to make it extra special by putting a personal touch on the gift presentation.  And, more importantly, I really wanted to get Brody involved in the process.  I thought it would be fun if Brody made his own wrapping paper by painting with his Matchbox cars.  Here is how we did it...

First, we gathered the materials we needed:
{all of the materials can be purchased at the dollar store if you don't already have them on hand}
-Finger Paint
-Paper Plates
-Brown Packing Paper
-Plastic Table Cloth
-Toy Cars {one for each color paint}

After getting all the materials in place and {disrobing Brody's upper body} it was time to have some fun! Brody drove his cars through the paint and over the brown paper until it was covered to perfection.

Then we let the paint dry for several hours and wrapped up the picture frame filled with the special photos we took just for Brody's daddy.

Jonathan absolutely loved the wrapping paper. In fact, he actually thought the wrapping paper was the gift! I had to tell him it wasn't a picture but rather wrapping paper for the real present waiting inside!  It was so cute to see Jonathan take such special care as he unwrapped the gift and to see Brody's face gleaming with pride!

I hope y'all had a fabulous Father's Day Weekend too!!!

  1. It really does look like a piece of art hanging on a wall. You should have saved this one and bought something real wrapping paper because this is really beautiful.
    Hope you have a good week.
