I will once again *sing* the praises of brown packing paper. Please tell me that you’re already using brown packing paper for all of your presents, and not buying over-priced wrapping paper!! You can get this at any dollar store, and get so creative with making your packaging unique! Here’s how I packaged up some cute last-minute Valentine’s Day gifts:
I made the first one by kissing that packing paper that I love so much with some bright red lip gloss, and then hot-gluing ribbons on a diagonal across the side:
For the second one, I used some Martha Stewart stencils and craft paint to come up with a cute “xoxo” pattern across the front of the packaging:
And the last one might be my favorite! I used some old lace (actually from my husband’s grandmother’s craft closet!) I wrapped it around and tied it together in the middle, and then I stuck a glittery heart on top with some hot glue. Love!
Please go out to the dollar store today and buy yourself some packing paper! Put away the over-priced wrapping paper for good and make your gifts more personal
