How to make handmade wrapping paper

Do you need to send a gift but you don’t have any wrapping paper? I ran into just this problem while sheltering at home during the quarantine.  What to do?  I looked around to see what supplies I had on hand.  I managed to rustle up some copy paper, watercolor paints with a brush, and some colored pens. If you don’t have paint, you could substitute food coloring instead.

I simply made little puddles of water on the paper with my brush and dropped in a couple of different paint colors into these puddles.  The paint mixed itself as the colors flowed into each other.  After letting the paper dry (I used a hairdryer to speed things up), I used the pens to draw some wonky circles around the paint blobs. Voila! I had some colorful wrapping paper just in time for my daughter’s birthday.
