Some Beautiful Gift Wrapping Ideas

Make Your Own Wrapping For Presents And Surprise Those You Love

  • Love the way these preserves have been wrapped, so apt.
  • Spray paint some boxes and use as a set of three, tied together in iridescent coloured ribbon. Find or purchase a basket and give it a lick of white paint.
  • At the bottom place some straw and fill with delicious homemade goodies, like jelly and biscuits.
  • Wrap in cellophane and tie with check, or tartan ribbon, for that country feeling. Finish off with more ribbon and flowers, on the handle. A great gift for a family. or friend. This can be very economical too.
  • Ornamental tins, are also a good way to present your gift in a very appealing and artistic way.
  • Make your own gift card holder, with a matching greeting card.
  • Hang little gifts on the Christmas tree, in miniature boxes, or floral home sewn bags, with each person's name on it.
  • These are just a few little ideas, to add to your own unique gift wrapping ones.

Enjoy your creative time and make something fabulous and different, from all the mass produced items, you see in the department stores.Your efforts will be appreciated, for sure.

1. Find some pictures in magazine pages that catch your eye and snip out the sections, you would like to use.

2. Start blanking out the shop name, with anything from your snipped cuttings.

3. Build up a picture using cut out shapes, in different shapes and colours.

3. Scrap booking items are so cute to use. Love these flowers, on the butterfly bag.

4. As you can see I cut out hearts and flowers, to create interest. The silver card also makes the bag look a little more festive.

Collect boxes and items for decoration


Do you enjoy making something from nothing?

  • I have started to collect all sorts of boxes, jars, bottles and tins that are decent of course, for birthday and other day gifts
  • .At a glance my cupboard in my scullery and spare cupboard in my bedroom, looks like a glorified junk store. But wait and see what becomes of these beautiful throw away containers and tins. I totally look like a hoarder, to say the least!
  • When I am finished with a nutritional shake, the empty one gets dutifully put away in my never ending storehouse of potential gift boxes for celebratory gift giving throughout the year.

Lovely article. Loved the ideas for packaging.

We would use them for our website

Our feelings and our emotions easily show on the type of packing we do for our gifts. We shall definitely put our hearts out in packing every single gift.

Thanks for sharing!

That is so true, We often cast aside some possibilities for creativity and do not see our odds and ends in our cupboards as a perfect gift wrapping tag, or bauble. Thanks for reading my post.Have a great day. Stay safe.

Some lovely ideas here and so easy to apply when your gift wrapping. I think we forget to put our creativity to use sometimes and use what we have stored up instead of always going out to buy things.

These are great tips as I need creative inspiration when it comes to my wrapping. I would never get a job gift wrapping, not a fruit of my spirit. I covet the talented ideas of others to make the magic happen.
