Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, End of school, and graduations… This is present season baby! Now, I know it’s tempting to just hit the dollar store and buy a gift bag and tissue paper, but an awesome wrap job goes a long way. Perhaps it could be said that I have two fetishes in life… sneakers (I seriously can’t get enough!) and wrapping paper. I might be one of the only people that have asked for wrapping paper as a birthday present. I was so excited to open rolls and rolls of it a few years ago!
So, let’s ditch the dollar store and check out some fabulous ideas for prettifying your gifts. It only takes a few more minutes and it will really let the recipient know how much you care!
#1- Yarn Embellished Presents
I love the rainbow effect and the tiny little knots. Kids could totally help with this technique!
These tags are adorable and would be so simple to make with your printer. The baker’s twine is really popular right now and much cheaper than ribbon. The newspaper is really easy to work with and makes the red accents really pop!
I have tons of scrap fabric that could be used to wrap! This idea would be especially helpful for those oddly shaped presents that are impossible to wrap. You can knot the top or tie it up with some ribbon.
I first was inspired to wrap with tissue paper when I was at a Christmas wrapping party and watched my friend Patty turn a present into a masterpiece! Granted, she only wrapped one present in about an hour, but it was one rockin’ present! I think that layering is the key when working with tissue paper.
So, with Father’s Day this weekend (I hope you didn’t forget!) maybe you can try out a new wrapping technique…
I promise you’ll love it!
PS- If you win one of Bethany’s Blossom Bands, maybe you can wrap it all fancy-schmancy before giving it to your little one! Make sure you’ve entered the giveaway… check out Tuesday’s post for all the details!
