How to Make Handlettered Wrapping Paper
My featured tutorial on The Pigeon Letters!
Handlettered wrapping paper is a fun and unique way to personalize gifts. I mean, what better way to make a present more heartfelt than with wrapping paper you created on your own? Whether you're writing the person's name, celebrating a special occasion, or thanking the recipient, handmade and hand-lettered gift wrap is a perfect way to add some extra love to your presents and gifts.
That's why I was so thrilled when Peggy Dean of The Pigeon Letters reached out and asked me if I would create a tutorial for her blog! I couldn't thinking of a more fun and appropriate way to share my craft with her audience. After all, her book, The Ultimate Brush Lettering Guide, is how I learned modern calligraphy in the first place!
Whether you're an experienced calligrapher and crafter extraordinaire, or you're a DIY novice looking for a fun project to try out, this handlettered gift wrap tutorial is the perfect marriage of calligraphy and crafting to get your creative juices going!
