I rolled out a small section and used the small star Christmas stencils from the Mini Christmas Pattern stencil collection by Old Sign Stencils. 

I began stenciling stars randomly all over the brown paper.

I used Metallic Champagne Gold from Fusion Mineral Paint for the stars.

A quick swirling motion with a semi-dry brush gave me the best results.

Then I used the small Christmas tree stencil from the same set.

When the paint dried there was nothing left to do but to wrap my gifts... my favorite part!
