Life Hacks : Gift Wrapping Ideas

Why waste your precious time lining up in the mall to get Christmas presents, when you can make creative and wonderful gifts at home?


Avoid the holiday rush and start enjoying the holiday spirit! With these crafty gift-wrapping ideas, now you can now take the stress out of Christmas gift-giving.




What You Need:

Black Cartolina
White, Silver, and Gold Metallic Markers
Double-sided Tape



1. Take out your black cartolina and cut it according to the size of your gift using a pair of scissors.

2. Next, using your white, silver, and gold metallic markers, write an attractive yuletide greeting or doodle a cheerful Christmas art in your wrapper. Let you imagination take over for a more wonderful design.

3. Wrap your gift with the cartolina using double-sided tape instead of regular tape to keep everything nice and neat.

Now you have a cool and affordable personalized wrapper that's sure to make your loved one smile this yuletide season. Customize your doodles depending on the occasion and use this crafty idea all year round!






What You Need:

Kraft Paper or Pattern Paper
Double-sided Tape
Assorted Christmas-designed Stamps
Stamp pad (Red, Violet, and Black)



1. Stamp Christmas-inspired designs all over your kraft paper. If you have letter stamps, try writing holiday shout-outs too for a more customized feel. Remember, the more stamps you put, the merrier it would look!

2. When you're done, take the present you'd like to send and wrap it using a pair of scissors, double-sided tape, and your personally designed kraft paper.

3. Add a lovely bow or ribbon for a pop of color.

Give your wrapper a lovely monochromatic look by stamping with just one color, and matching it with a bow and card of the same hue. Just Add a Bow and a Card (no wrapping needed).
