Nowadays, nice wrapping papers are so expensive – and the ones that come free when buying a gift are all the same and blah !!! boring!! So how do we wrap up the gift in a unique or different way so that it stands out from among the similar ones at the party table?
And then sometimes, there’s a sudden birthday party invitation – and we are out of wrapping paper !! What do we do in such a situation?
Here are some easy and inexpensive gift wrapping ideas – when you are out of wrapping paper or you want to do something different !
1. Gift wrapping from chart papers
I was actually out of wrapping papers at this time. All I had was white and black chart paper at home. There were two gifts – I wrapped the bigger one in white and smaller in black chart paper and pasted the smaller one on top of bigger one. To fill in the white space, I used a black pen for detailing. On the black one I used white paint to mark the birthday boy’s name! Looks nice – right?
You can actually use any colored paper for wrapping the gift and stick some stickers – maybe according to the birthday theme of the party. e.g. if the theme is jungle or animals, paste animal stickers or take a cutting from some old newspaper or magazine and paste it on the gift wrap.
2. Gift Wrapping from Newspapers
This is the easiest one – even if you don’t have colored papers, there are always newspapers at home.
stock up on some sketchpens, colored tape, stickers, or anything else you can think of – for decoration.
