Turn Gift Wrapping into a Craft
with These Creative Techniques

Enjoy creative fun with gift wrapping craft

Making something for someone as a gift is very fulfilling. You put a lot of effort into creating something and can't wait to see the look on the person's face when you give it to them. But the gift-giving can be a craft in itself. If you always take care when you wrap gifts, you can take it to the next level by turning it into an artform. If simply folding some colorful paper over a box is no longer enough for you, there's much more you can do to make your presents almost too tempting to open. Try some of these creative ideas to wrap or present a gift to someone in style.

With some inspiration, you can easily make an artform out of your gift wrapping, where even the wrapper becomes a gift.  (Image by Erika G. via Flickr)

Shop for Unique Materials

If you can't get the hang of fiddly present wrapping, there's no need to worry. You can rely on your choice of materials and go for a more simple presentation instead. Don't settle for cheap wrapping paper and gift bags from budget stores when you can find much more beautiful items elsewhere. Try looking for some unique paper patterns by using Etsy or another site where people can offer their own designs. You can find cute tags and ribbons from East of India Gifts and other boutique brands offering lovely designs. Think outside of the box with the materials you use too.

Learn to Wrap Difficult Objects

Seek your gift wrapping inspiration when an occasion demands it, such as Christmas

When you're wrapping up your gifts, boxes, and other rectangular objects are a breeze. You can take care of them with attention to detail. But when it comes to slightly more unusual shapes, you can start to become a little less confident.

Items like bottles of wine or cylindrical or spherical gifts are awkward to wrap in paper, and often you can end up just dropping them in a gift bag.

While a bag can look beautiful, it's much more impressive (and more fun) if you can use wrapping paper to perfectly cover every inch, without a wrinkle or ripple in site. If you want to learn how to wrap these complicated objects, it's best to find a tutorial or even take a class.

Make It Personal

Buying beautiful supplies to wrap gifts is a start, but it's even more special if you make your own. There are lots of ways you can create things to decorate your gifts, from wrapping paper to tags. You could make your own paper by having a custom design printed onto a roll for you, or even using plain paper to do some artwork. Some other ideas include putting your own photos or art on gift tags or even sewing your own ribbons. You can create something that's so beautiful, everyone who receives a gift will want to keep the wrapping as well as the present. If you want to get even more creative, try recycling odds and ends that you already have lying around.

Wrapping gifts can be a craft in itself, which makes it a fun thing to do during the holiday season. Turn it into a hobby instead of a chore by using these fun techniques to create a masterpiece.
