Give away the party's trendiest parcels, at least when it comes to how they're wrapped. METHOD: Unroll the paper onto a durable surface (preferably outside). Spatter with paint using a spatter brush. We spattered white paint onto black paper and black paint onto white paper. Grey paper with black and white spatters also looks fabulous! Let the paint dry for two hours before wrapping the parcels or rolling the paper back up to use later. For simple decoration, tie on a piece of string, giving it a slightly slapdash look. For the final touch, add a star tag with the text "happy".
