You may have already realized that I am really in love with stationery and, at this time of year, it seems that this obsession gets even bigger! That’s why I love to bet on unique gift wrapping for Christmas!
In addition to being a “therapeutic” moment for me, it is at this time that I can use and abuse creativity to create beautiful and personalized packaging with many stationery items. I like the theme so much that it even has an old video on the channel that I teach some wrapping options – click here to see.
In the video I comment that I love colorful packages and full of prints, but I confess that in recent years that opinion has changed a little. I am increasingly enjoying the neutral models, but no less charming. To create this “minimalist” base, kraft paper is the best option. In addition to giving a beautiful effect, you can find brown paper in any stationery and it is much cheaper than gift papers in general.
I think I already wrote too much, right? It’s time to show you some beautiful references that will definitely inspire you!
It had never crossed my mind to create a wrap with cotton balls. Make several sizes, complete with a beautiful ribbon and a cute little bell if applicable ?
The paint can make a little more of a mess, but the effect is wonderful! You can use different brushes to create different effects and finish with a simple wound or even string.
Who knew that a transparent double-sided ribbon and some golden stars would look so beautiful and delicate with craft paper? This one is a more glamorous option, after all, there is nothing better than brightness at this time of year.
How about putting a cute little photo in the package? You can either use a photo of the recipient or one that you know he will love! The gift already starts outside the package, right?
For the effect to be more cool, finish with a bicolor string and that’s it!
This one is one of my favorites! Bet on a beautiful box underneath or make a second layer with colored gift wrap underneath. Then just draw hearts on kraft paper, cut the halves with a stylus / scalpel and wrap!
You know that braid I taught in American apple pie? So, it also works as a decorative element in Christmas packages! Choose a wonderful ribbon and throw yourself into the braids ?
TAGS AND PLANTS
This one is for those who love a more rustic decor! Leave the packages ready, but finish with the plants only on the 24th, see? Finish off with cute tags where you can write the name of the recipient and some more cute phrases.
How about letting some splashes of white paint fall on your packages? In addition to being very simple to make, the effect is delicate and even looks like an irregular print.
Make a few lines with the stylus on the paper and leave even a smaller, more charming little gift. Have you ever imagined receiving a book with this package full of plants? Much love
A layer of washi tape, a beautiful bow with a beautiful ribbon and a star-shaped tag are enough to take your gift away from the obvious ?
So, do you also love putting together gift packages? I think that even those who are lazy may have been inspired by these beautiful ideas!
