Over the weekend, I had to wrap a birthday present for one of A’s classmates. As I was feeling extra crafty, I decided to start with a blank slate–kraft paper–and build from there.
Using left-over hole punches, I first stuck neon orange circles onto the kraft paper. I love the look of bright orange against neutral brown. It really stands out!
Then instead of ribbon, I used two shades of blue yarn which I wrapped several times around the gift. I topped this off with several sizes and colors of pompoms. I thought it made the present look really festive and fun! 🙂
For the gift tag, I used a manila tag, and used my stamps to create the greeting. To personalize it a bit, I let the little one sign the card :).
So there you have it, an easy, festive, and crafty gift wrapping idea! It took just a couple of minutes to actually put this together, and I had so much fun doing it too! 🙂
