Part of the fun of receiving a gift is unwrapping the present. And a beautifully wrapped gift is an art in itself.
Because you’ll probably be wrapping loads of presents in the next few days, I thought you might enjoy these inspiring and creative gift wrap ideas.
Not only do they look stylish and original, but they’re also so quick and easy to do. But the best thing about them is that you’ll already have available most things you’ll need for the gift wrapping. So these ideas are really cost effective too.
3D wrapping paper
Instead of buying wrapping paper, have you ever thought of making your own? This 3D wrapping paper creates a really dramatic effect, yet takes no time at all. The butterflies or bows in a contrasting colour give it such a wow factor.
Ombre wrapping paper
This hand painted Ombre wrapping paper couldn’t be easier to do. And as Ombre is a big trend right now in fashion and interiors you’ll get extra style points for presenting a gift in ombre gift wrap.
Ruled gift wrap
It’s amazing how standard, every day materials can take on a whole new appearance with a bit of imagination. Go old school and use regular ruled paper as gift wrapping. The addition of a bow and simple red ribbon are the perfect finishing touches.
Gift tags with a difference
Instead of just adding a gift tag as an afterthought, how about making it an integral part of your presentation? These gift tags create a striking decorative effect. And would you believe, they are made from nothing simpler than wooden ice lolly sticks and coloured yarn!
Use one stick to write who the gift is to, another who it is from, and the third for a short personalised message.
How to make a paper bow
A bow just adds decorative flair to any gift. And these paper bows with a trendy chevron pattern add an extra little twist. You can find the instructions of how to make one here along with free template to download.
