It’s amazing how a little attention to detail makes a gift that much more special. With a little creativity, a few craft supplies, scissors, and some tape, your gift wrap could easily become just as memorable as the treat inside. People usually like to brainstorm about gift wrap around the holidays, but I like to have unique ideas handy year round, for birthdays and other gift-worthy events.

I love this take on newspaper wrapping.


This would make a great baby gift


All you need is a bit of raffia for this one.


Simple but crafty.


A modern floral.


I love these colorful take-out boxes from Envelopments.
You can choose your pattern.


Again, so simple.


How about taking a cue from your loved one’s passion – musical or otherwise? This also makes a great Christmas wrapping.


This one’s sparkly and creative – what could be better?


This is a simple one if you’ve got stencils or a (really)
steady hand.


This wrapping is part of the gift.


And just for fun, check out these GOR-geous designs from
Whimsy Press.
