Tis’ the season to wrap gifts! I love gift wrapping, it’s an art – it literally is an art in Japan. A beautifully wrapped gift makes the gift much sweeter, I think. While I love beautiful printed wrapping papers, I also love the simplicity of craft paper and its versatility. You have to see these craft paper gift wrap ideas. I used the same paper and dressed them up creating 3 completely different looks.
Craft Paper Gift Wrap Ideas: 3 Looks
For my first look, I used craft paper and a large vintage-looking candy cane coupled with a cute Christmas green striped ribbon. I added a small sprig of faux greener with a gold ornament to top it off and this gift feels so nostalgic with the classic Christmas colors and stripes. The candy cane is such a cute touch.
For my next look, I wanted to lean into the brown color of the craft paper itself and give it a more masculine vibe. I chose a woodsy theme and used natural colors and elements like wood and worn leather. First, I wrapped the gift in cream and brown twine. I tied a wooden Christmas ornament to the gift with the twine. I removed the string from the ornament and replaced it with a leather loop. The ornament came with the greenery and pinecones but you could easily add that separately. To keep it simple, I used a green marker to write the recipient’s name directly on the craft paper.
For the last craft paper gift wrap idea, I wanted to go a different route and show that the paper can also be dressed up. First, I used a deep red silk ribbon wrapped a few times around the box. Then I used a gold tinsel ribbon wrapped the opposite way to jazz it up. I finished it off with a large bow and a cute tag.
How cute are these gifts, all wrapped with craft paper? I hope I inspired you to take your gift wrapping to a new level with these simple craft paper gift wrap ideas.
