It’s time for some fabulous Christmas gift wrapping ideas! I love giving presents at Christmas or anytime. And I love wrapping presents; especially at Christmas. It becomes another cool design project for me. During the year I stock up on ribbons, paper and cute little items I can use to decorate gifts. This way when a birthday or gift giving occasion arrives, I am ready to wrap. Christmas time I really have some fun with it. I thought it was time I shared some creative gift wrapping ideas I’ve found out on the interweb. I hope they offer you lots of gift wrapping inspiration.
Christmas Gift Wrapping Ideas
1. Your gifts will look so festive with a bright pop of color.
2. Jeweled brooches add glamour to packages wrapped in plain Kraft paper and tied with white ribbon. The brooch makes a lovely keepsake.
3. Here Kraft paper is embellished with ribbon, raffia and rickrack in red and white. Mix it up by using stripes, checks and solid colored ribbons. Attach dried flowers or berries to add a little something extra.
4. Using a large simple font, print out gift recipient’s names on craft paper. Then cut them out and glue them on the packages.
5. Print out photos of gift recipients and adhere to cardstock. Cut it out in the shape of a tag. It will be easy to see whose gift is whose when their picture is on it. Plus, the tag makes a great keepsake.
6. Red and green rope makes perfect ribbons. Add some cinnamon sticks or holly leaves and berries for more color and pizzazz.
7. Wrap a package in Santa’s belt. Cut a square out of glitter paper, and then make two slits in it. Slip black ribbon through it and wrap it around red paper.
8. White wrapping paper and black circles turn 3 plain boxes into an adorable snowman. You can make the circles out of black craft paper or felt. Roll orange craft paper into a pointed tube to make the nose.
9. Tulle used as ribbon makes this package seem all the more special and elegant.
10. Jazz up white wrapping paper with candy canes and beautiful ribbons.
