You can easily create wrapping paper, or giftwrap, out of newspaper, white drawing paper on a roll, newsprint, etc. This can be done with the paper surface laid flat, or after you have wrapped the gift in it.
I created some giftwrap designs on brown kraft paper, after I wrapped the gifts. This gift was stamped with my hand-carved Uptree Downtree stamps. Before I did that, I painted the blue hills. I used a gold metallic paint pen to add the treetop stars and golden snow flakes on the ground.

Looks like a cut potato was used to begin the creation of this watermelon slices paper.

I created this brown kraft paper design for a gift to my sister on her birthday. I used 3 different designs of small foam rollers. Actually, my tool is a mini paint roller with interchangeable heads. Three of the heads are made of yellow sponge with designs carved in. I started my design with dark blue in a horizontal bars pattern.

I ended with a white pattern rolled with the vertical bar roller head. The white added a nice (here comes that word that you, like me, now hate) POP of color.
