On any occasion, you would stop and think about the surprise gift you want to hand to your beloved ones. And it doesn’t usually end here. Wrapping the gift is your next challenge so we don’t say hassle. Therefore, I am bringing to you through this blog 10 creative ideas for gift wrapping, and by saying creative, I promise you some out-of-the-box art and craft ideas that are far from the regular gift wraps you have been doing.
Imagine you are invited to your best friend’s birthday and carrying a gift with normal wrapping. Aren’t birthday celebrations meant to create memories? Get a simple design paper wrap and stick or hang a childhood picture or one of the best pictures you have had with your friend with a very personalized handwritten message on its back.
Whether you are sending a gift through a courier or handing it over yourself, don’t go for the regular wrap and stick or hand a card with your thoughtful wishes. Improvise with the wrapping technique and have your card creatively inserted. Check out this video tutorial and learn how you can insert a card in a gift wrap.
Many people and I admit I am one of them, like to receive a personal note instead of a store-bought card. You can always get a nicely designed paper and write your thoughtful wishes or just buy a creatively handmade card (or do-it-yourself) and get your wishes beautifully written. I guarantee this will be one of the best ways to personalize your gifts on special occasions.
Use a craft paper kind to wrap your gift, tie it with a burlap rope, then get a stem with some leaves and insert it. The contrast between the brownish paper and the green makes the gift wrap very beautifully neat and special. Check out the picture below and get some inspiration for your next gift offer.
Now get a one-color paper wrap. Get the gift you purchased and wrap it. Then wrap around a burlap rope and tie a rose. You can create a nice contrast between the color of the rose and the gift paper wrap. For example, the blue paper makes a great contrast with a yellow rose. Simultaneously, a red rose goes well with white or off-white paper. All you have to do is crossing and matching.
This may be one of the easiest and funny gifts wrap ideas. Imagine you would like to offer a gift to your parents and kids are very excited to get involved in throwing a surprise for their grandparents. Just get a one-color gift wrap, and some color paints. Ask then your kids to use their hands to create handprints or fingerprints in different colors on the paper. Once dried, wrap your gift with love.
You need to write your message on a card! Said who? Nowadays gift wraps with beautiful monotone colors and textures for easy writing are displayed in stores. All you need to do is pick the right color that matches the gift and theme you have in mind, and get this paper. You can write your message or draw it. Use your imagination to transfer what you have in mind onto the gift wrap. Need some inspiration? Check out this video.
When I say motifs, they could be anything and not necessarily those you buy for a gift store. Think of pompom, or of some small decorative items that you have at home. You can decorate your gift wrap with shells that you collected from the sore during your last trip. And because nothing is impossible, you can make the shape you want through air-dry clay. Here’s how!
Though this style may not fit every occasion, it is one of the most beautiful styles for gift wrapping. Kraft paper makes the best match when using doilies. And here, I am not referring to knitted doilies. Plenty of paper doilies are available in stores for multipurpose use, and gift wrapping is one of those reasons. Gift wrapped with doilies is perfect for weddings, engagements, and valentines. However, you may receive an invitation to another occasion, and such gift wrap may fit well.
If I say cutouts, you only need a paper wrap, scissors, or a cutter and maybe some colors if you are up to some coloring. Start first by drawing the shape that you want. Let’s take the heart shape as an example. With the cutter, start cutting around half of the whole heart. You will end up having a semi or fully opened heart. IF you opt for the semi-open heart, you can color the closed part for a colorful gift wrap. How beautiful it looks?
When it comes to some specific occasions, offering a gift to someone brings joy not only to their day but to yours as well. You can go creative not only with the gift wrap pattern you choose or the card or message you write but with the way you wrap it as well. So which idea did you like the most?
