I love to use handmade wrapping paper to wrap gifts and kid made wrapping paper is lots of fun. This tape resist technique is great because it allows you personalize the present and also eliminates the need for a card if you are in a hurry.
Use low-tack tape (such as painter's tape) to write the child's name, initial or age. Madly color and scribble around the tape. Remove tape. Voilà!
