DIY Christmas Wrapping Paper


Devoting your time to creative, homemade Christmas gifts makes store-bought wrapping paper and bows less than exciting. Instead of buying rolls of the same paper everyone will have, make your own unique and/or eco-friendly wrappings.


Basic Paper Options (Before Decorating, of course)

 

  1. You can buy cheap rolls of plain brown paper at many craft or paper stores.
  2. Many toy stores and even Ikea sell large rolls or pads of white paper to be used for children’s crafts or an easel.
     
  3. Paporganics and many other paper sellers offer 100% recycled paper, especially around the holidays. Opt for the plain options and decorate the paper yourself.
     
  4. For smaller items, you can also recycle brown grocery bags for wrapping paper.
     
  5. Don’t discount using fabric to wrap gifts. The Japanese government encourages its citizens to wrap presents without throwaway paper, bows, or tape. Here is their handy guide. This is also a guide for fabric lunch boxes!


     
  6. With simple sewing experience, you can use fabric to create reusable gift bags. Your recipients can reuse the bags for the quickest wrapping ever, which also cuts down on paper consumption. Canadian Living shares a quick tutorial for these festive bags.
