Here’s something I never thought I’d make – bridal wrapping paper! Using pens and letting Cricut do the doodling, I turned plain printer paper into a sheet of wrapping paper in minutes to wrap a small gift for a bridal shower.

DIY Wrapping Paper with Cricut Pens
What you’ll need:
- Plain printer paper
- Cricut pens. I used the 0.4 black pen, gold marker, 0.4 raspberry and 0.4 magenta (most from the Fine Point Pen set)
- Cricut Explore Air 2
The hardest part of creating this was putting together the design, but you can take advantage of mine here.
If you want to create your own.. insert a bunch of images and set the operation to draw. Arrange them to create your design and change the colors to the pens you’ll be using for a more realistic view.
Put your paper on your mat, load it in the machine and start drawing. You’ll swap out pens a few times until each color is done.
Then just wrap your gift and admire the fun design!
Not bad for some unique wrapping paper in a few minutes! I can’t wait to create more for other occasions.
