Wrapping up Christmas – Some Creative Ideas to Try

Leave a comment

Here are some nice ideas on Pinterest you could do if you want to wrap your Christmas presents with a little creativity!

Follow my Christmas board on Pinterest for more ideas.To make your wrapping that bit different think about how you can change the key components: ribbon, paper, decorations and labels.
Ribbon – You could go a different route and use some fabric fancy ribbons, strips of paper, knitting yarn, lace, felt strips, string or tinsel.string parcel gift wrapping ideas christmas

Add some interesting ribbons

Paper – Select something other that is not normally used for wrapping such as music paper, white or brown paper, magazines or even fabric!

Try using something different as wrapping paper. How about some Christmas carol music manuscript paper

Labels – Instead of just opting for labels from the shops that match the paper why don’t you make something a bit different. Stick on buttons, cut up old Christmas cards, make some from clay or use blackboard paint. The label world is as wide as your label imagination!

Decoration and extras – Instead of the normal bows why don’t you attach some bells, sweets, buttons, pine cones, a paper snowflake or a pom pom!
