Creative DIY Kraft Gift Wrapping Inspiration - part two!

Friday 6 December 2019

Our everyday kraft paper bags and boxes are a customer favourite all year round. 

During the holiday season you can turn these plain packaging products into some festive using just a few supplies like paint markers, twine and ribbon.  

White Sharpie paint markers were used to draw on all of the bags and boxes in this post.

You can keep it simple and just add a design to just the front of a bag (or box) or ... 

you can go all out and wrap your design around to cover every side!

In this example, we glued baker's twine around the bag and worked it into the overall design of the drawing for an unexpected detail. 

A very simple mistle toe graphic was repeated around this folding kraft box like a printed design. The lettering was added to the front of the box so twine could be wrapped around the box and tied at the top. 

Snowflakes, evergreen branches and dots were mixed and matched on all of these kraft packaging products so that when they were all displayed together they would look like a "collection". Even the hand drawn designs on the ornaments co-ordinate with the gift wrapping!

The black and gold printed Starry Night tissue paper was used as inspiration for the graphic elements that were used in the design on this gift bag.

Ornaments make great gift toppers and double as another gift. The ornament has a holiday saying on our sample but you could easily create these with names and use them as a gift tag as well. We kept the drawings on this folding box very simple by just repeating snowflake like shapes in various sizes.

If you prefer to hand letter a design on the lid of a gift box, tie a ribbon around the side of the box like this sample.

Wrap up gift cards in one of these plain kraft gift card holders and then make it your own it with some simple graphics. Ribbon and a hand lettered ornament are the final touches.
