If you are tired of wrapping your homemade creations with store bought gift wraps, here are some of my top finds for alternative ways to package your gifts.

  • Vicki Payne, host of DIY Crafts, creates wrapping paper using dye to paint onto Kraft paper.
  • Curbly takes wrapping tips to a new level with many quick and easy ideas to personalize your gifts, including comics, fashion magazine art, or using old sewing patterns.
  • DIY Life has listed some environmentally-friendly wrap ideas, such as fabric gift bags, re-purposed paper, and refashioned cardboard boxes.
  • Step-by-step fabric gift wraps, from Dot Com Women, help to use up some of those extra fabric pieces you may have around the house. They also have a project using crepe paper as wrapping.
  • We even have a gift bag project right here on CraftStylish which you can use to wrap odd shaped items, such as wine bottles.

Happiness like, when we see the RAINBOW IN THE SKY, when a little baby put up his first step. Similarly Giftbasket spreads happiness all around you and your dear & near one.

I got the Recycled Sunshine Mini Journal, Small Sewn Blue Paper Box, Set of Wintery Wonderlandy Bottlecap Magnets, Rainbow Ribbon Scarf, and Angel Magnet. Everything is so beautiful...can't wait for my order to arrive! It took me less than 10 minutes to register on Etsy for the 1st time, shop, and purchase my items. I will definitely be back to shop at Boxing Day!!
