Making your gift wrap pretty:
Sure we can all wrap gifts in wrapping paper or stuff them into gift bags with a little tissue paper and those wrapping techniques work great! However, here are a few ideas to make a gift a little more personal:
Make handmade gift tags to place on top of the gift. Make homemade tags by printing out clip art off the computer and using it as a tag!
Wrap the gifts with wired ribbon for an elegant look.
Cut out recipients initials out of fabric or paper and glue onto gift bag or wrapped gift.
Add a small ornament onto ribbon wrapped gift.
Use remnants of fabric to wrap gifts.
Glue old buttons onto wrapped gift.
Add candy canes to gift bags or wrapped gifts.
Wrap gifts in felt instead of wrapping paper.
