Craft FAQs

What can you use to make polka dot wrapping paper?

You can use circle stickers, stamp polka dots from the end of a pencil eraser or even stamp your finger in paint to create a polka dot pattern.

Kraft paper works really well for gift wrap. We just like recycling brown bags if we have them on hand.
