Unique Gift Wrapping Tips & Ideas

1. Christmas Themed Word Search Wrapping Paper: Polish The Stars  Just print & wrap.  I used my chalk pencils to highlight the words.  The twine adds a magical touch…one of my first times to use it since I purchased it!

2. Wire Garland: Found this cute cotton ball looking wire garland hanging with my ribbon that I had never used.  I decided to wrap it around the gift and loved the texture it gave to the gift.

3. Ribbon: I used scalloped ribbon to pretty up this gift.  Ribbon is always brings lovely results.

4. Tulle: I love wrapping gifts with tulle.  It dresses up a gift very quickly and always looks spectacular.  Plus, it’s very inexpensive.  I usually buy mine in the wedding section at the dollar store.

5. Printable Tags: I found these adorable, simple tags by Little Paper Dog.  They were completely free!  Download, print & cut… easy peasy!

6.  Bow: Oh Amanda taught me a new way to make a bow using your wrapping paper.  It’s genius and very simple to make.  She has a wonderful tutorial on her site.

7. Stamps & Such: On these gifts I decided to stamp the recipients name.  It was simple using my scrapbook stamps and added a little glam.  I also used a chipboard letter on this first letter of Mark’s name.  I layered it with burlap, added some paint and tied on some ribbon.  I took some other wrapping paper & turned it over using the wrong side.  It looks like brown butcher paper.  I only used a portion of it to add a little depth.  On John’s gift I decided to use my circle punch to give the edge a fancy border.  Just punch half the circle to make this look.  I decided they were pretty enough without a bow so they don’t have one.  Crafting & scrapbook supplies come in handy for all sorts of projects.  Try to think outside the box.

Just in case you are still needing some wrapping inspiration…

Wrapped with love,

    Thanks! I’m going to use a couple of these – – – I’m really tired of curling ribbon.

  4. I always see presents like this and wish I took the time and went to the trouble…but it’s just wrapping paper and way too much tape at my house!

    • It was a way for me to do something creative & cross something off my to do list at the same time. The creative process is therapeutic. Melissa, I normally wrap gifts on Christmas Eve…those aren’t this pretty, I promise! 😉 Thanks for stopping by!
