Stamped Wrapping Paper

Last Wednesday, 16 teens came out to make stamped wrapping paper.  We made worked in groups to make giant rolling stampers using mailing tubes and self-sticking foam shapes.  (Tip:  Double up the foam shapes to make a sharper impression on the paper.)  Then, the groups quickly painted the foam shapes and rolled out their designs on Kraft paper.  Yes, it was messy, but at least I had the forethought to cover the carpet with roofing tarps!  The finished products turned out nicely.  The wrapping paper did require some drying time, though, so I just hope everyone comes back to pick up their papers if they are planning to use them for Christmas.  Here are some (slightly blurry because I took them with my phone) action shots:
