Masked Gelatin Printed Heart Wrapping Paper

Six years ago I made a video about how to create simple, but gorgeous masked gelatin printed hearts.

And now I'm taking that idea and creating some Valentine's Day wrapping paper!  I didn't use the exact same technique (I mean, what's the fun in that?) but it is very similar.  One important new skill I teach in the video is how to use a small plate for a (fairly) seamless pattern on large piece of paper. 

You can watch the video for the how-to:


And here's a pic of my gorgeous gift all wrapped up and ready to give!

I also like it with one of paper masks placed over the heart.

I hope you'll give this technique a try!

Thanks for stopping by!
