Making Greek Vase Gift Wrap Is Fun
I love this stunning Greek vase wrapping paper. You can either make it in black and white, or add some colour to it with a coloured pen and some coloured satin ribbon. I find that this is a lovely gift wrap for any occasion, for him or her. You can actually apply this technique to any design for your own wrapping paper.
Bold and striking and yet classy and unusual, it's really nice to give that special someone wrapping paper that is unique.

Choosing A Picture For Making Greek Vase Wrapping Paper
When you have selected a picture to reproduce, make three photocopies or print outs of that picture. Then cut them out and stick them in a line on a sheet of paper. Then make a minimum of ten photocopies of that sheet of paper.
Now, you will have at least thirty pictures to cut out and arrange onto a much larger sheet of paper. You can arrange them however you like. I have chosen a couple of different arrangements.
How To Decorate Greek Vase Gift Wrap Paper
The first arrangement that I have done, leaves some white space as a background with the vases spaced widely apart and inverted on alternating rows and placed in between the spaces of the previous row.
The second arrangement, allows a lot less white background space. The vase pictures are placed base to base on alternating rows, with no alternating gaps. If you need to fit the vases right up to the edges, you can cut them down.
Adding Colour To Black And White Greek Vase Gift Wrap Paper
Then, if you photocopy your design onto another large sheet of paper, you can add some colour to your design using a felt tip pen. You can also photocopy your design by making the size bigger or smaller, depending on the present that you would like to wrap with it.
Monochrome wrapping paper looks beautiful with a colourful contrasting satin ribbon.
Greek Vase Gift Wrap Conclusion
Of course, you don't have to do Greek vases but this print demonstrates the concept perfectly. Simple bold shapes in monochrome are very effect for making impressive wrapping papers.
So find a design you like and follow the above principles and let us see the results.
