Here are nine very quick and easy gift wrapping ideas that will help your presents look so pretty and make the recipient of your gift feel very special. None of these are original ideas – just what I’ve put together after being inspired by Pinterest and Instagram!
Most of these start with the present wrapped in either butcher paper or brown paper – a lovely blank canvas to make pretty!
Wrap your gift in butcher paper and then in some pretty coloured wool. Make a couple of little pom poms in matching colours and tie on.
TWINE AND STICKERS
Wrap your present in butcher paper, then wrap the twine around the box three times tying in the back. Find a pretty sticker and attach in the front where the twine crosses over. In this case, I have used my logo sticker.
PRETTY PAPER AND RIBBON
This pretty wrapping paper is from Daiso, and I tied a pretty coordinating ribbon around the middle. That’s a kraft envelope with washi tape on each end.
BROWN PAPER PACKAGES TIED UP WITH STRING
Here I have used brown kraft paper, with some of the pretty Daiso floral gift wrap. I used my pinking shears to cut the edges of the floral paper (scallops would look good, too!) Then three times round the package with string, and it’s done. I’m pretty sure I got this idea off Instagram but can’t for the life of me remember who’s feed
Presents were wrapped in butcher paper then tied with thin pieced of fabric which I save from my sewing projects. I made the envelopes from scrapbooking paper (and some of them even match the ribbons!)
Oh my! What you can’t do with washi tape… Just wrapped the gift in butcher paper and went to town with my pretty tapes. Easy peasy!!
YO YO’S (or SUFFOLK PUFFS)
I have a growing number of yoyo’s (with colour coordinated button middles) sitting in a jar just waiting to be attached to a plain butcher-paper wrapped gift! I colour matched the twine and there you have it!
TWINE AND A BUTTON
I love this colour combination. Brown kraft paper with black and white twine, and a black and white gingham button – perfect!!
FABRIC BOWS AND PANEL
This was a wedding present. I wrapped the gifts in tissue paper and tied them with fabric bows using the same fabrics that I used to make the gifts. Then I popped them in a plain brown kraft gift bag that had a fabric panel glued on to it.
Well, that was nine different ways to quickly and easily make a gift look pretty. Hope you get a chance to try some of them.
Till next time,
