For my wrapping paper, I cut a piece of freezer paper to be 8.5 x 11 inches to fit over the diagonal template and to make it easy to see through. Cardstock would be super difficult to wrap with, so freezer paper was an ideal solution.
For my paper, I used three of the sentiments from Betsy Veldman's Inspired Series - Inspired: Hope, Inspired: Jesus, and Inspired: Grace. Each of these stamp sets is a $5.00 set and similar in font size and proportion to each other. I think it worked great for my wrapping paper. For the colors I used Scarlet Jewel, Dark Indigo and Pine Feather.
I don't have anything to wrap up at this point in time, so I thought I'd make mine into an envelope for a 5 x 7 card. I did make one mistake when stamping, but I was able to hide that when I converted the paper to an envelope. It's really easy to make your own envelopes with a Scor-Pal and some Scor-Tape or any type of double sided adhesive.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on my Wrapping Paper turned Envelope and I can't wait to see what stamp sets others have used to create their wrapping paper.
