If you’re looking for a simple, neutral alternative to traditional wrapping paper, kraft paper makes lovely wrapping paper. It’s also less expensive — without being flimsy or cheap — than traditional high-quality wrapping paper.
But it doesn’t have to be boring!
In fact, you can dress up kraft wrapping paper packages a number of different ways. Here are just a few:
- Use die cut letters to spell out the recipients name
- Attach candy canes, ornaments, greenery or other embellishments with ribbon
- Create potato stamps and stamp designs all over the package
- Tie with yarn instead of ribbon
- Have the kids draw or color on the paper before wrapping the package
- Top with homemade felt, magazine or kraft paper bows
- Decorate with lace, doilies, etc.
- Stamp with letters or seasonal stamps
- Add a monogram with die cut letters, markers or fabric
