Howdy all! This is one posting that I am super excited to share with you all. How I wrap my Christmas gifts (actually any gift that I give). I learned how to wrap gifts when I was younger from my grandpa Tom. He was a wrapping genius and today I thought I would show you how he wrapped his gifts and how I put a spin on his technique using different items besides wrapping paper.
Below you will find how I use scrapbook paper to wrap my gifts and make the holiday into a little DIY Gift Wrapping Extravaganza. I have never been much for “holiday” paper for some reason. I like bright vibrant and different! I hope you enjoy 🙂
When getting ready for your wrapping marathon nothing is better than saving money and the perfect way to do that is to save on Tape, right? I don’t know about you but I always run out of tape in the middle of the night, not this year. If you purchase your Scotch® Brand products at Walmart you can save not only with a rollback but also a 50% bonus 🙂

I found the Scotch® Brand products conveniently located with all the holiday decor in the garden area of my Walmart, but you can also find all of it in stationary as well.
Two items that I have to have when wrapping is the Scotch® Magic™ Tape 3 Pack Caddie and the Scotch™ Multi-Purpose Scissor 8”. They are a total must for me! I love that Scotch® brand is donating$200,000 to Fisher House this holiday season. Fischer House charity that provides a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment. Gotta Love a company that gives back.
Other supplies that I use are different planner material that I have collected during the year. When it comes to wrapping I don’t run for the Holiday wrapping paper but bright and colorful material to wrap with. I also grab a roll of craft paper to have on hand as well. I want each gift to be wrapped differently in a crafty and fun way.
DIY Gift Wrapping Using Scrapbook Paper
One medium that I love to use during the holiday season is scrapbook paper. This is a bit harder to work with, but once you get the hang of it, you can fly right through all your small gifts, most of the sheets don’t even needed sized or cut so this saves time.
The first thing that you want to do is to get everything together for the theme of your package or gift. This is going to a good friend of mine, so I wanted something that screamed fun and fabulous. I picked my washi tape, cut outs, and stickers.
Once everything is together put the gift in the middle of the scrapbook paper. I just eyeball it to make sure that it is going to fit properly. Lightly start to wrap the paper around the gift. Since scrapbook paper is a bit thicker than normal wrapping paper, you will want to make seams in the paper ahead of using the Scotch® tape to hold it.
Next, you can start to tape the scrapbook paper around the gift. I fold my ends like an envelope which makes it super easy to control the thicker paper. I have found that the Scotch® Tape works best when it comes to holding the scrapbook paper.
After it was wrapped with the scrapbook paper, I then added different elements to the gift just to personalize it a bit.
You could also go a step further if you had a larger gift. I use brown craft paper (or you could use brown wrapping paper) to wrap larger gifts. I then use a glue stick to add glitter in a very random way. When you put the two gifts together, I just feel that it is unique and beautiful.
I do hope that you enjoy these two little ideas for wrapping gifts. Not only is this a fun thing to do but super easy. Nothing needs to be perfect! Just unique. I hope that you try out my little DIY Gift Wrapping and most of all have fun.
I want to send a special shout out to Scotch® Brand for not only allowing me to do this posting but for the amazing work they are doing helping out Fisher House this holiday season. Thank you for helping out our amazing vets. If you would like to help and donate to Fischer House, you can do so here.
