5 Ways To Wrap A Gift

I love sitting down to wrap gifts -- be they Christmas gifts, wedding gifts, birthday gifts, or baby gifts. I love putting time into creating a package that is just begging to be opened. Although it doesn't take long for all of my hard work to be quickly torn apart, I feel proud when I make something beautiful that people can't wait to open. There are a lot of great ideas out there for wrapping gifts, but here are five of the ways that I am inspired to wrap gifts this year. The wonderful thing is that you can mix all of them up and use the different ideas together. Have fun!

1. Wrap your gift with beautifully stenciled parcel paper. You can also create a beautiful effect yourself using a stamp and ink, or paint. Domaine has some beautiful inspirations for creating a gift wrapped just like the one in the photograph, but maybe with your own little twist.

2. If you can find your own cute little box in a shop, or create your own template, it's always fun to give a gift in a container that's almost designed especially for the person that you are giving it to. La Fabrique a Fantaisie has templates for all three of the little boxes you see in the photograph. The website is in French so make sure you click on the links -- n1, n2, n3 -- just above the second photograph and you will be taken to the templates.

3. Boxwood Clippings has some incredibly beautiful ideas for wrapping gifts. I was drawn to the little package in the photo above because of it's simplicity, and I really like the idea of using an object like a small ornament to decorate the gift along with a beautiful fabric bow.

4. I have been meaning to make my own gift bag for the longest time using the tutorial from Hello Sandwich. I really like the idea of being able to use scraps of extra wrapping paper that maybe don't fit any box or other gifts that you have, and could be used to make a gift bag instead of being thrown into the recycling bin.

5. The little gift in this photograph screams simplicity, and I absolutely love it. It's so easy to just wrap up a box with some twine, and then attach a gift tag with a mini clothes pin. You can paint it like they did on Beyond the Grey, or you can give it a little pop with some washi tape that has been cut down to size.
