Hand printed gift wrap with bubble wrap and Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

Finally I found a good use for my rolling pin! This little DIY is so simple and makes a very good impression as gift wrap.

The tiny air pockets of the bubble wrap becomes polka dots and by combining two colors from our Annie Sloan palette it adds a fun element.

We have used Napoleonic Blue and Antibes Green. You can win the entire palette and a specialist brush in our Annie Sloan competition so enter now!

Step 4:

I have used a paraffin lamp wick as a finishing touch in yellow. Simply dilute a bit of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in English Yellow with water. Submerge your ribbon and let it soak for a few minutes before hanging up to dry.
