3 Last Minute Gift Wrap DIYS (made from common household items!)Okay, so have you ever been on your way to a party and realized you didn’t have any gift wrap on hand (and no time to get to the store). I think we’ve all been there. Here are three last minute gift wrap diy ideas you can make with what you have in your home right now!

Time: 3-15 minutes, depending on design
Materials: paper bag, stamp pad (or acrylic paint) Q-tips Cotton Swabs and Precision Tips, glue gun

Making polka dot wrapping paper is BEYOND easy! Take your Q-tips Cotton Swab, dap it on your ink pad and then dot on your paper. You should be able to get 2-3 dots per ink dip. Continue adding colors until you’ve covered the paper. If you’re a super perfectionist, it helps to then wrap the gift and then go back in to add a few more dots (so you can be specific about the placement).

Just like that, you can turn a paper bag into handmade gift wrap. Happy holidays and happy wrapping!

Another pattern you can create is dashes! For a thinner line, I recommend using Q-tips Precision Tips. Like with the dots, dab your Q-tip on your stamp pad and draw your line on the paper. You might have to use a few Q-tips throughout depending on how large of a bag you’re using.
