Rap While I Wrap

When giving a gift, I believe in judging a book by its cover.

I believe wrapping a gift with intricate care is, in some ways, a means of showing how much you care.

Here are a few ideas on how I usually wrap gifts.


Butcher Paper & Paint

I use butcher paper and acrylic paint to create a one-of-a-kind look. I like to create unique designs that really showcase the recipient's personality and style. As a rule of thumb, use a simple and a classic butcher paper color. This way, the design really takes the spotlight. 


Stickers Make the World Go Round!
I love to add stickers to my gifts. This is a cheap and easy way to really customize the final look. 

You can literally write anything your heart desires. If you're really ambitious, skip the card and write the letter using only stickers on the wrapping itself.


Basket Case
To make your life easier when putting a wide range of gifts together, you can never go wrong by arranging the gifts into a wire basket. 
I got this wire basket from Target for a mere 5 bucks! That's as cheap as a gift bag. Plus, gift bags get thrown out. This wire basket is something that the recipient can keep forever.


My Version of a Gift Bag
This makeup bag makes the perfect gift bag for small gifts. Plus, like the wire basket (above), the recipient can keep it forever. 
That's what I call hustling.


Add texture to create depth.

 Texture is a really good media to pull the gift together.

I like to use dried leaves, flowers and twine. But, you can use whatever you can get your hands on!

-That's a WRAP!-
