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).
(PS you can learn how to do this holiday manicure right here!)
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.
And if you’re a minimalist, or just short on time, you can create this Q-tips snowflake topper with just a few quick dabs of hot glue. Let glue cool before adding on to your snowflake.
Just like that, you can turn a paper bag into handmade gift wrap. Happy holidays and happy wrapping!
