I’m about to drop a realness bomb on you. Sometimes I don’t like wrapping presents. Boom. I love the idea of wrapping presents. It’s all cozy and fun and you put music on and drink hot chocolate by the tree and wrap away. Until you have paper cuts everywhere and run out of tape and just can’t get your corners folded right and you’d rather be drinking wine anyway.
Anyone feel me here? If you do, this one’s for you. Super simple, super affordable, super fast DIY holiday wrapping. Let’s do it.
- paper lunch sacks
- rubber stamp (I made this one last year)
- stamp ink
- hole punch
- twine (all of my twine came from Thatch and Thistle on Esty)
Make Time: 5 Minutes
I didn’t get step-by-step photos for this one, but it’s beyond simple. While your bags are still folded and flat, stamp an image on the front side. Fill with your gift or goodies and fold the top over twice, toward the stamp.
Punch two holes in the folded top section, string with twine, and tie in a bow. Done!
I used these for the West Elm gift bags and they were a hit! They’re perfect if you have a lot of small gifts to give — very cost-effective, and pretty cute to boot. Happy wrapping! xoxo
