1. Paint It Up — Giving a Golden High Flow Acrylics Set or a Da Vinci Brush Canister to the artist in your life this holiday season? Create soft wintery gift wrap using Golden High Flow Acrylics in Iridescent Gold, Iridescent Silver, and Phthalo Green to paint soft brush strokes and splatters on White Fadeless Art Paper. When the paper is dry, wrap the gift and add yarn snowballs made with White Trait-Tex Jumbo Roving Yarn


2. Hand-Drawn Details — Have a friend or sibling who likes to journal and sketch? Shizen Faux Leather Journals and Blick Studio Brush Markers are great for the novice and seasoned artist alike. Make it festive by wrapping them in Black Fadeless Art Paper decorated with designs made with Krink Paint Markers or Krylon Leafing Pens. Then accent the packages with bows made from Roylco Double Color Cardstock Sheets and Blick Metallic Gold Tape.


3. Pretty Patterns — Did you splurge on a Utrecht Artists' Acrylic Wood Box Set or a Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolor Set for that special someone? Wrap the surprise in elaborately patterned paper. Start by drawing simple designs on Blick Wonder-Cut Linoleum, then cut out the design with a Blick Lino Cutter. Coat the linoleum with Blick Block Printing Ink and stamp the designs onto the Fadeless Art Paper. When the ink is dry, tie up your packages with Darice Baker's Twine. Stick on a few Creativity Street Rhinestones to make the packages even more festive!
