How to Dress up Plain Brown Wrapping Paper
1. Tie it up
Tie ribbon, raffia, twine, yarn, leftover holiday garlands or any else that inspires you around a gift wrapped in brown paper, or a plain brown box. If you really want to fancy it up, do what the pros do and layer. For example, use both raffia and twine. The more creative you are about what you tie around your gift, the more impressed they’ll be.
2. Top it off
Upcycle leftover party favors by taping them to the top of your gifts. Make it even more festive by attaching them with decorative tapes.
If you’ve got confetti or glitter handy, swipe glue across the paper and sprinkle some on top. Brush off the excess and voila: a fast and fun alternative to the usual ribbon.
3. Stick stuff on it
Dive into your dusty bin of scrap booking supplies and put some of that sticker collection to good use. Add even more detail and personality with colorful tapes, simple paper cut outs or our personal favorite, googly eyes.
4. Write it out
If all else fails grab a sharpie and pen a quick sentiment, or create a custom birthday drawing or pattern.
That’s a Wrap
