Printing wrapping paper

Last week we made our own wrapping paper, we printed it using florist oasis blocks.

I designed some blocks and the children made some as well. The oasis block is really easy to cut up etc. I used a sharp knife to cut it into small blocks, then either a pencil or this time I had saved the scrapers from the scrape art kits, which worked very well. Just make sure you you carve deep enough so it doesn't fill up with paint. I've found the block work best if you paint them with paint, rather than dipping them into paint and you can print several pictures each time.
