wrapping paper - family project

Here's the start—although I like it as is. I used a black marker and drew this on a large piece of butcher paper that has been around for a long time. I'm going to stretch it on the kitchen table and enjoy some coloring time with the kids. I want them to fill in some random leaves with a crayon. I hope I can convince them that there's no need to color every single leaf. Less is more.

  3. Thank you so much for your sweet encouraging note! It meant so much to me! I also LOVE this idea! I've been making my own wrapping paper since we got to Morocco because wrapping paper isn't available here, but I never thought to let my kids to it. Duh! LOL! They would love doing something like this... now if I could just learn how to draw like you... :-)

  7. I read the post without reading the headline, and thought you were making it into a tablecloth for your kitchen (because you stretched on the kitchen table). I think it could also be a beautiful tablecloth, but I don't know how you would could turn it into one. maybe print fabric, or cover in plastic or something. In any case, i love the pattern!
