Let’s face it. Some of us like to wrap gifts and some of us don’t. If your packages come out looking like a hot mess, you’re not alone. Getting those crisp corners isn’t easy. But what if you could distract from the wadded up corners? Whether or not you’re a present wrapping genius, you’re going to love these gift wrapping hacks.
Add an Extra to the Package
It’s fun to add a little something extra to a present. You can tie an ornament onto the package using some ribbon or you can even tie ribbon around a bag of candy to make it look like a bow. I don’t know about you, but I would certainly love getting a package that came with candy.
Keep Ribbon Organized with a Paper Towel Holder
Do you have rolls of ribbon all over your dining table? Corral them all onto a paper towel holder. You’ll be able to easily see what you have and unwind exactly what you need without having a big mess.
Wrap Presents with Fabric
Looking for something unique? Use fabric to wrap your gift. This is a great idea if you have someone crafty in the family. They can reuse the fabric to make their own project. You can also use scarves to wrap presents. The best part is the wrapping doubles as additional gift.
Create Your Own Designs with Kraft Paper
Kraft paper is perfect for any gift giving occasion. You can decorate it to make it completely custom. If you’re good at drawing, draw on your own design. You can also use stamps to decorate the paper. If you’re giving the gift to a child, attach a box of crayons and let them decorate their own gift.
Go Green with Recycled Toilet Paper Tubes
There are two great gift wrapping hacks that utilize toilet paper tubes. You can place small gifts inside the tubes and close the ends to form a box that you can decorate however you like. You can also cut the tubes down the side to open them up and wrap around your rolls of wrapping paper. This will keep them from unrolling.
Decorate Packages with Paper Crafts
Last, but not least, if you love making crafts out of paper, use them to decorate your gifts. Wrap your gifts in a simple paper and then cover with homemade snowflakes or banners made from twine and different colors of paper. Just have fun with it.
Gift wrapping doesn’t have to be hard. There are so many gift wrapping hacks that will make your packages look awesome.
