Crafting beautiful objects is one thing. But what happens when we want to offer them as gifts?
Have you ever thought about do the wrapping of the gifts yourself that you want to offer besides making the gift itself? Wouldn’t that be the ultimate DIY gift?
I think so too!
There numerous ways to wrap a present and even more materials to use so that we can make one look outstanding.
When wrapping a present, I love using eco and/or recyclable materials. And if you have such materials at home, why not use them in a unique way, am I right?
How do you like turning a supermarket paper bag into a beautiful wrapping design?
But let’s get to the specifics.
I’ve got a few posts planned out, and I’d like to work on wrapping projects more in the future. Therefore, I really hope you’ll like this one and you help me with your feedback.
Today, I’ll show you a very simple way to wrap a small present ultra fast without spending much -if any, money in the blink of an eye.
Main materials that we’re going to use.
Tools we’re going to need to make this happen
I place the brown paper on the table. Based on the object size and shape, I cut the respective size of paper to wrap the gift with.
If there’s any paper remaining after you cut it, you don’t have to throw it away since you can easily use it on a future crafting project.
Tip 1: Don’t throw away any materials. There’s always a way to use it on your next project.
Once you’ve got the paper cut on the desired size, wrap the object that you want to offer as a gift and use transparent tape to keep everything together.
I now start designing a flower or heart shape on the felt. This doesn’t mean that you can’t design any other shape you like. Be creative!
As I was saying, I cut a yellow piece of felt at a shape of a flower and I also cut a circular yellow piece to give this flower a bit of color.
Now that my felt designs are ready, I take a piece of twine and I tie my gift, right after placing the felt pattern on top of the wrapped gift.
We’re almost there!
To make the wrapping more interesting, I tie a couple of little bells at the edges of twine. It gives this little extra to its personality and makes it even more unique!
Tip 2: If you’re like me and you’re not the best painter ever existed, you can always find designs online and draw the pieces of felt quickly and easily.
So simple and yet so colorful!
On a future post, I’ll also make a tutorial on how to create greeting cards so that they accompany your beautiful gifts. A handmade gift that was created with a lot of love and passion.
I wish a beautiful day and best of luck with your projects.
