This DIY tutorial is about how to wrap a present. I share eight creative gift wrapping ideas. These DIY present wrapping techniques can be used to wrap birthday presents and Christmas presents or other occasions when giving a gift. I show how to wrap a box or a package and decorate the present using different gift wrapping techniques and styles. You’ll learn how to wrap a gift creatively, perfectly and professionally. I show all wrappings step by step slowly, so this DIY tutorial is perfect for present wrapping beginners. I’m sure you have a lot of gifts and presents to wrap for your friends, family (father, mother, children, boy, girl) and partner (boyfriend, girlfriend, wife, husband) so this tutorial should be helpful all year around.
First cute gift wrap is perfect for those who like travelling. Instead of wrapping the present with the usual wrapping paper, use a map to wrap the gift! You can also add a ribbon or just a brown string like me. I also show how to make a cute DIY gift card from cardboard and brown paper.
Next, I made a pyramid gift box from a cardboard. This is a perfect way to wrap small gifts like a piece of jewelry or chocolate. You need to cut the shape out of the cardboard and fold it to get a pyramid, on top you add a ribbon bow to close the box and you can also hang it on the Christmas tree.
A very cute gift wrapping technique for the winter winter is by using snowflakes. Wrap the gift in the solid color wrapping paper. Then make a snowflake from the white paper and place it on the top of the package. Wrap a ribbon around the package to keep the snowflake in place! And you have a super adorable gift wrap!
In this DIY gift wrapping tutorial I also show a very cool and interesting Japanese technique of wrapping gifts called tsutsumi. All you need is a piece of light fabric and you can wrap the gift in less than a minute. This wrapping technique is so special and cute!
Another lovely gift wrapping idea incorporates beads and a knotting cord. If you are into jewelry making, than you probably have a lot of beads lying around your home like me. You can use them to decorate your presents. I used some colorful beads and my package box turned out very bright and fun.
Next gift wrapping ideas incorporates a standard ribbon, but I used it in a very special way. First wrap the present with a solid color wrapping paper. Then make a lovely pattern at the top of the package using several pieces of colored ribbon and some glue.
Another way of wrapping your present is using some colored cardboard and a thread. Cut small circles from the cardboard and thread them. Then wrap the thread with the colorful circles around the package for a lovely colorful accent on the package.
Lastly I used a button and some string to dress up a plain white package. Thread a button on to the string and then wrap the string around the package, making sure the button is on top of it. Make a bow on top and you’re done. This is such an easy technique but still unique and interesting.
Take time to wrap your presents in a different and unexpected way. By doing this you will tell your loved ones how unique and special they are to you.
