Paint large abstract shapes or stamp out patterns on your craft paper with 3-4 colors. Start with large shapes and work down towards smaller shapes. spacing your pattern evenly across the surface of the paper. Then let dry.

Materials List

  • White craft paper
  • acrylic craft paint
  • paint brush
  • rubber stamps
  • ink


  1. Select 3-4 colors of paint and decide on a theme- your shapes can be abstract but still be loosely based off of real life. I went floral, but you could also do circles, squares, trees, ..... anything. That's the beauty of abstract art!

  2. Create shapes using one color at a time and evenly space over the surface of your paper. I like to start with the larger shapes first and work down so that the smallest shapes are painted on last. Since this is like a large scale painting- you can put your whole body into the painting motions. It's so much fun!

  3. t dry. This may take some time if you have thick globs of paint, but it's well worth the wait. Once it's dry, wrap your presents in it, or roll it up and save it for later!
