In this article, our packaging experts at Créastyl will share their best tips for achieving a beautiful gift wrapping to place under the tree. Whether you’re feeling creative or looking for a practical and quick gift wrapping solution, we have the ideal solution to help you create a lovely Christmas gift presentation.
Our experts’ tips for creating a beautiful Christmas wrapping paper:
– Opt for high-quality paper. You can find wrapping paper in a variety of colors and patterns, or you can choose to use plain paper and decorate it yourself. Expert tip: if you’re short on time, use pre-decorated or solid color wrapping paper; if you have more time and want to make a stronger impact, go for DIY decorating!
– We also recommend using festive colors like red, green, and gold to create a Christmas atmosphere.
– Make sure to use enough wrapping paper. You don’t want your gift to be visible through the wrapping paper 😉
– For the finishing touch, we suggest using festive ribbons or bows to complete your gift wrapping.
Indeed, the above tips are basic but essential for achieving a beautiful gift wrapping. Once you have these elements in your possession, you can enhance your classic gift wrapping using several easy DIY tricks!
The best DIY Christmas gift techniques
For you, the Créastyl experts have discovered the best DIY trends for 2022 to embellish your Christmas gifts!
Adding a border
There are several popular DIY crafting techniques for creating beautiful papers and gift wraps. One of the simplest techniques tested by our teams is to use a border around the paper’s edge. You can use various materials to create a border, such as ribbon, washi tape, or lace. Once the gift is wrapped with paper, simply add the border to the edges to easily enhance your initial wrapping.
Creating a centerpiece pattern on the paper
Another popular technique is to create a simple pattern in the center of the paper. You can do this with basic drawing skills or with stamps and stencils. If you want to get really creative, you can try making your own patterns or designs. After wrapping your gift with regular wrapping paper, you can draw elements using colored markers. You can also use stencils or stamps with your chosen patterns if freehand drawing isn’t your forte. For stencils or stamps, we recommend using snow-effect pens to align even better with the theme!
Adding 3D elements
On a plain wrapping, you can add 3D elements to bring some excitement to your gift package. For example, you can add raised trees, Christmas ornaments, or even hearts in addition to your plain wrapping paper. Simply create raised structures using appropriate folding, then glue them to the wrapping paper using strong liquid glue, and you’re done!
If you’ve opted for patterned wrapping paper, you can also add 3D elements according to your imagination. For instance, adding pompom noses to the reindeer on your wrapping paper will have an effect! You can also add cotton to the beard or hair of Santa Claus on your gift wrapping! This will make your wrapping unique and stand out under the tree.
Faster gift wrapping solutions
If among the various DIY gift wrapping solutions discovered by our experts, you haven’t found what you’re looking for and you want to quickly wrap your Christmas gifts while still presenting a neat and appropriate wrapping, there are other solutions that we can suggest to you!
Christmas-themed bags can be an excellent solution if you want to quickly and easily wrap your gift. You can choose from a wide variety of patterns and colors of kraft bags, then simply place your gift inside the bag and tie it with a festive ribbon. This is a great solution if you want to give a gift but don’t want to spend too much time wrapping it.
Gift pouches, are also a quick and tidy way to wrap a Christmas gift. There are many patterns and sizes available to best match your recipient and your gift. We suggest adding a personalized tag or adhesive bow for an extra touch.
Gift boxes and sets
Finally, you can also use gift boxes and sets to quickly and beautifully wrap your Christmas gifts. They have the advantage of being reusable by the recipient, especially for decoration and/or storage. It’s a convenient wrapping solution that can also contribute to zero waste!
Christmas gift wrapping doesn’t necessarily have to be difficult, time-consuming, or expensive. There are many solutions that will cater to your needs and the recipient’s personality. We hope these ideas have helped you start thinking about how you want to wrap your Christmas gifts this year! Merry Christmas from the Créastyl teams!
