3 Free Holiday Packaging Ideas

9:00 AM

One of my favorite things about giving gifts is wrapping them! I love using lots of different materials. I've put together a few ideas for how I have made some packages extra special recently.

1. Add an ornament! I make a lot of baked goods over the holidays. It makes them feel extra special when I attach a handmade ornament like the snowflake shown above. To learn more about how to make the snowflake ornament, click here!

2. Would you believe that this package is made from a toilet paper roll? It is! I folded in the two sides to close up the ends. Then, I just attached a thick, beautiful ribbon around the middle to make it sparkle. You can add a gift tag and smaller ribbon to finish it off. This is a perfect size for jewelry gifts!

3. My co-worker Kristen designed these awesome, printable, petal boxes this year. I used the tag that she included but spiced it up with a little bit of left over lace ribbon that I had laying around. I love how this turned out. Again, this is a the perfect size for jewelry. To print out a petal box, click here.

The moral of the story is that you don't have to spend a lot of money or time to make a package feel special. In fact, you can often find really awesome things in your junk drawer of crafting supplies that you can use to dress up a package. Grab a pair of left over beads and tie them to the end of a ribbon. Or, braid some Soft Flex and wrap it around a small package to add some color with a modern feel. Whatever you do, make it handmade!

Merry Christmas, y'all!
