Two things I’ve made clear: I’m crummy at getting wrapping paper corners to lay flat and I love Martha Stewart Crafts Acrylic Paints. Hence, this steamer turned color blocked gift container.
To make your own you’ll need:
– bamboo steamer
– acrylic paint (I used Martha Stewart Crafts Acrylic Paints in party streamer, wild salmon, and gold)
– basic paint brushes
All you need to do is paint the outside of the steamer (I did two coats), then let dry, and gift away. IF they like it enough, the gift recipient can even repurpose it as a storage container for bits and baubles or beef jerky. Their call.
