5 Handmade Giftwrap Ideas

October 01, 2013
Instead of using the same roll of wrapping paper, mix things up this year and make your own giftwrap. Here are 5 ideas for presents so fancy, they’re almost too cute to open, inspired by the stylish designs of the Ziploc® brand Holiday Collection.

Punchy polka dots

Wrap the gift in brown kraft paper and decorate with polka dots. Use liquid corrector fluid for white dots or a metallic permanent marker for silver or gold. Top with a gift tag made of cardstock in an accent color.

Sock it to `em

New patterned socks or knee-highs make great giftwrap! Just cut off a section of fabric and use it to keep your gifts nice and warm. Tie the ends into a bow or wrap a box candy-style by tying the ends with ribbon.

Natural attraction

Top your gifts with earthy elements like feathers and leather rope for an all- natural touch. Twine, ferns and burlap also create a fun, rustic look.

Color me pretty

Color white drawing paper with markers to create festive designs such as snowflakes or Christmas lights. Wrap your presents in your custom paper and finish with a fake flower, ribbon, or twine.

Button up

Who says bows get to have all the glory? Buttons make great gift toppers too. Just wrap twine around your present, pull through the buttonholes, and tie!
