Yup! Its true! I’ve already started wrapping Christmas presents! I wasn’t kidding when I said I was doing my best to stay super organized and get ahead on things this year. I ordered a few of the hubbys presents already and wrapped them as soon as they arrived! I haven’t gotten the tree up yet, but that didn’t stop me from busting out the scotch tape and getting my wrapping on!
I’m keeping it themed this year too! I’m doing all my gift wrapping with kraft paper and metallic card stock circles. I’m totally digging this look 😀
Here’s what you need to do your own gift wrapping with kraft paper:
Roll of Kraft Paper ( I got mine on Amazon)
Gold Bakers Twine
Metallic Card Stock in Gold and Charcoal
Plain paper (lined or blank, doesn’t matter)
Adhesive Squares (Like these ones) and glue stick
1 inch letter (cut mine with my cricuit explore)
1 3/4, 1 1/4 inch and 1 inch circle punch or cricut
Wrap your packages like your normally would in the kraft paper. Take the bakers twine and secure the end to the back of your package with scotch tape and wrap around the package a few times. I varied from 3 to 5 times around the different gifts I wrapped. Set aside.
Punch or use your cricut to cut out your circles. You’ll need need 1 3/4 and 1 1/4 inch circles in the metallic card stock and 1 inch circles in the plain/scrap paper. If desired, use the cricuit to cut out the initial of the person the gift is for. Glue to the 1 1/4 inch circles.
Take one of the twine wrapped packages, place an adhesive square on one of the pieces of plain paper. Take one of the metallic card stock circles and add an adhesive square to the back. Slide the plain paper circle under the twine, then firmly press the metallic circle on top. Repeat until you have as many circles secured as you like 🙂
I also used a larger metallic circle as the bottom with another metallic circle on top, you know, just to keep it interesting 😉
I’m planning on doing a variation of this gift wrapping with kraft paper for all of this years presents and I am kind of excited about how pretty they are all going to look under the tree!
