Default Using Christmas Wrapping paper to make pattern

I needed some paper to design a pattern and I needed it to be bigger than printer paper. I had an ah-ha moment - what about that Hallmark paper I just used with a 1" grid on the back? It works!

Guess we will all need to stock up on Hallmark wrapping paper in the after Christmas sales start. Now we know why they put the graph paper on the back. :-)

This is a great idea, but be careful the print on the paper doesn't rub off on your fabric.
