10 ways to gift wrap with craft paper

Are you the type who wraps all presents using the same coherent style, or do you like to go with whatever you have at hand for each receiver? I have years and years – in my craftier years, all my gifts were perfectly matched and looked great together under the tree. Some other years, well, I just couldn’t decide. A solution to such indecision is to just use brown craft paper. What comes after is pure creativity… Here are 10 DIY ways to gift wrap with craft paper:

8. Wreath // Craftberry Bush. Wreaths with winter greens are the perfect topping to simple, boxed packages. A little wish on a cardstock banner makes them even prettier.

10. Painted // Inspired by This. You can always upgrade brown paper with a few strokes of paint. The red, green and gold combination couldn’t be more appropriate.
