1 Lay out your pa­per on a cov­ered sur­face, in case the paint seeps through. If you’re us­ing rolled pa­per, weigh down the cor­ners to pre­vent curl­ing. Use a clean palette to en­sure the paint stays one colour.

2 Use the sponge roller to ap­ply an even coat of paint to the base of your pa­pier mâché box. Clean off any drips with a piece of rag or clean cloth.

3 Stamp onto your pa­per us­ing a firm and steady hand, try­ing not to wig­gle the box. You will need to re-ap­ply paint be­tween each stamp.

4 Once dry, wrap it! We also added a layer of sparkly tulle and fun metal­lic rib­bon to our gift.
