When it comes to wrapping presents my all time favourite material to use is kraft paper. I love how versatile it is, it's the perfect backdrop for so many cute ways to decorate your gift.
I'm always pinning great ideas (you can check them out here) and coming up with new ideas of my own.
Here are five of my recent favourites...
If you follow me on instagram you'll know that making the little bunting flags out of washi tape is one of my 'go to' wrapping techniques. It's so quick and simple and is perfect for little girl gifts.
This lace and blue ribbon combination is how I wrapped all of my Christmas gifts last year. They looked really sweet under our blue and white Christmas tree.
This little twine flower was an idea that I saw on Pinterest just the other day. They are really easy (and lots of fun) to make.
This is one of my new favourites. It's a little tedious, but definitely worth the effort! I used a border punch along the edge of the paper and then threaded some bakers twine through the little cut-outs.
I've saved the best for last. This one took the least amount of effort on my part, but gave me the biggest smile. Max saw me wrapping a present for his little friend Chloe and wanted to join in on the fun. He got out his crayons and drew a rainbow (and some other squiggles) on the paper and then we wrapped it around a present for Chloe. He was so proud when it came time for her to open it!
So there you have it, 5 ways I like to wrap with kraft paper. Do you like to fancy up your gifts or are you more of a gift bag person?
