Need to wrap a present but don’t have paper?

I am the worst at remembering to pick up wrapping paper. Most of the time is because I can’t find anything I really like when I look. Or sometimes it’s so expensive for one little roll. So, instead, I started making my own.
All you need is tissue paper and some stamps. Today I made wrapping paper for a little girl’s birthday present. First I took white tissue paper and doubled it up (since its so transparent) to wrap the present. It usually takes about 4 sheets to wrap an average size present, but you can get a ton of tissue paper in the packs at the dollar store. I think I got a pack of 100 sheets for $1. Then, I took some stamps of a birthday hat, balloons and the word party and used different color inks to stamp all over the present. For the last step, I took a stamp that says “party. just because.” and I used it on the back of the card’s envelope. Here’s what it looked like when I was done:
