Wrapping Things Up

Posted on

Happy Sunday, all!

It’s Christmas Eve, can you believe it? Have you gotten all those lovely gifts wrapped? If not, I’ve got a few more fantastic ideas for bumping it up a notch. First up is a quick and easy option if you have a hoard of wrapping paper (guilty as charged), DIY paper gift bags from Designer Trapped:

Super cute and can be made to any size specifications!

If you’ve got some small things, these DIY pyramid boxes from Lines Across will do the trick:

If you’ve got a card stock hoard, too, these will also help clear some out.

If you are really ambitious, though, I’d love to give or receive these adorable DIY animal boxes from Lia Griffith:

I just can’t get over how super cute they are!

Maybe you’ve got a huge roll of that brown butcher paper? This next one from Burlap and Blue¬†is a great project for the kiddos as it entails dipping your thumbs into paint to create the light bulb shapes on the paper:

You could also theoretically use brown paper bags if you like to think green.

Finally, one more thing to be made from that wrapping paper stash is…the bow itself! This quick little tutorial from Charlet’s Website looks super easy:

This is great to know for other occasions as well.

Hopefully at least one of these have helped you get those last minute things done. Have a safe and happy holiday tomorrow, everyone!

Stay crafty!
