DIY Gift Wrapping

Not only can you personalize a homemade gift, but you can take it a step further by personalizing the wrapping paper as well.  Think outside of the box with this project, there is no right or wrong.

Wrapping Style #1


Starting with the smaller box, I wrapped the cover and the container separately with the wrapping paper. 


Wrap the container and cover and tape down.


Complete both parts of the box for decoration.

For this wrapping, I chose to create an aztec pattern.  I simply googled an image of an aztec pattern so I had something to follow.  Line up rows on your box, varying in width.  With your markers, begin making patterns with shapes and lines. 


I went ahead and added the name of the recipient and some glittery studs to give it some depth. 


Wrapping Style #2

Wrap your box with solid gift wrap. 


I chose to use the recipient’s initial as the decoration.  Using a pencil, outline the initial in a fun font. 


Using your glue stick, outline the pencil and firmly attach the yarn onto the outline.  Add some sparkly buttons or any other fun attachments.
