DIY Paper Towel Watercolor Wrapping Paper

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Latina Bloggers Connect and Orgullosa. The opinions and text are all mine.

I love wrapping gifts during the holiday season. It’s a great way to come up with new unique ways to wrap presents and be creative. I came up with this idea while crafting with my little girl. We were painting some boxes, and we used paper towels to clean the mess. The paper absorbed the colors beautifully and it spread out like watercolor,

Noche Buena (Christmas Eve) is just around the corner and my kids and I couldn’t be more excited to open presents and enjoy some yummy tamales! We have our own new traditions of wearing matching PJ’s, opening presents on Noche Buena and opening “Santa Clauses” presents on Christmas Day to surprise the kids. We also love videotaping the kids opening the presents, dancing to Christmas songs and playing games together as a family. We love every bit of the holiday season as a Latino family while making our own traditions.

Holidays can also be messy, especially for me as I craft a lot during this time a year. Having plenty of Bounty Paper Towels is a great tip for cleaning all of those holiday messes. Stock up on butcher paper as well to cover your craft table while crafting, simply toss the butcher paper when you are finished.



Have you ever thought of using paper towels to wrap gifts? Add a little color by letting the kids paint over the Bounty paper towels, let dry and use to wrap small gifts.

To make your own Watercolor Paper Towel Wrapping Paper you will need the following.

  • Bounty Paper Towels 2x Stronger
  • Watercolors
  • Watercolor Brushes
  • Cup of Water
  • Tape, Ribbon, Scissors & Gift to Wrap

Step 1. Tear apart about two pieces of Bounty paper towel and place on a flat surface
Step 2. Depending on the watercolors you are using, dip your wet brush in the watercolor while adding enough water to make the color watery.
Step 3. Stroke or dip the brush onto the paper towel. Then dip the brush into the water cup, brush onto the paper towel. Saturate the watercolor brushes to make the paper towel absorb the color. Don’t worry about how much water you use, the Bounty Paper Towels can absorb the watercolors like no other and the colors blend so well in the paper towel.


Step 4. Work the watercolors and water around. I’m pretty sure your kiddos would love to watercolor themselves. Since it’s Bounty, the paper towels are strong and absorb the watercolors like magic.

Step 5. Let Dry. Then carefully wrap your gift with your Bounty Paper Towel watercolor wrapping paper.

When finished, simply use Bounty Paper Towels to wipe out the watercolor left on the table. Bounty Paper Towels can handle big clean­ups and still use less vs. the leading ordinary brand.
