14 gift-wrapping ideas



I love gift-wrapping presents, especially when I can utilize my "save-it-for-a-rainy-day" stash to make something pretty to brighten up somebody's day. :) Here are 14 gift-wrapping ideas.

1. Shabby chic tins

Sturdy metal tins make great packaging. Make them pretty with lace, flowers and bling.















2. Fancy pillow boxes

If you are giving away something small, decorate some pillow boxes with stickers and stamping. I get these when I buy charm bracelets [that I collect but never wear..] and I like to fill them with sweet treats. :)

Or if your gift is a little more substantial, you can go for a more decorated pillow box - patterned paper, lace, ribbon, chipboard and blooms.

3. Decorated pull-out boxes

I love pull-out packaging boxes. Try a glittery cute "scene" or a pretty textured look.

4. Make a brown paper envelope cute

If your gift is long and flat like a notepad, go with a decorated brown paper envelope. I embellished mine with cute stuff.:)

5. Pretty up a plain brown paper bag

Patterned paper and pretty/cute embellishments can make any plain shopping bag look much better.

6. A decorated box and matching paper bag.

If you want to get a little more fancy, decorate a box and a matching paper bag. :)

7. A bento box wrap

When you don't have wrapping paper big enough for your box, go with some remnant fabric.

8. Go for a metallic look.

A little bit of mixed media texture and some hardware can dress up an otherwise plain box.

9. Tiered cake boxes

If you have a few gifts, you can go for some pretty tiered cake boxes. They look pretty individually but really pack a punch when they stand together. :)

I reckon these wrappings are like a present in themselves! IF you make me choose, it would be the yellow material wrapped one....a bit strange, since I'm not into material or sewing in any shape or form....but I do like the way you've folded it! Have a lovely weekend:):) EYE'm sure you will...... some more eye drawing maybe??!!!

I adore the tiered boxes that look like a cake. I often give several little gifts so making a set like this would be ideal. Thank you for sharing another beautiful idea.

I am a huge fan of fancy gift wrapping, so this post makes me happy, happy! LOVE all your ideas and I so love how you upcycle! I hate seeing stuff get chucked into the trash, and you have given us so many awesome ideas of other ways to use leftover packaging. Love them all! That bento wrapping with the leftover fabric makes me swoon!
