During my maternity leave, Melanie contributed this great post about making a coloring wrapping paper for the holidays. Such a cute idea! My talented sister Becca has been intro drawing florals lately so I asked her to draw this floral patterned wrapping paper for Mothers Day that you can download and print. Then comes the fun part! You can channel your inner ponytail grade schooler and color it yourself, or round up some kids for a fun afternoon project. I love the versatility of coloring the whole thing, part, or none at all! All options are lovely I think, and not just for Mothers Day.
Keep reading to get the download and instructions for printing…
1. Download and save this floral design. It’s 24 x 36 inches which is a good wrapping paper size.
2. Take it to a print center (like Kinkos, Staples, etc) and ask to print an engineering print. Easiest thing to do is email it to them and pick it up. Or you can show up with a thumb drive. Prices range depending on where you go from about $3 to $5 a sheet.
3. Get out your markers or crayons and color away! We tried watercolor too but found the paper was too thin for that.
4. Wrap and gift away!
