You’ve found the perfect present…but let’s not forget about the presentation! We’ve got some great new packaging ideas that are much simpler than they look. In just a few steps, you can create your own original bags, boxes and wrap.
Papercraft designer, Lia Griffith, teaches us how to use a Cricut® die cutting machine to make these cute cardstock gift bags with coordinating tags. Cut and score with your machine; then add a pretty ribbon to complete the bag. Think of all the color and print options to choose from! Check out the video from Creativebug here.
If you’re feeling a little more artistic, you can hand-paint your own paper. From swirls to stripes, there’s no way to go wrong with a one-of-a-kind design. You’ll need sketch paper, an array of paint colors and a variety brushes, of course. For painting tips, look here for the video. Be creative and don’t forget to have fun!
You can also make your own paper box, using a bone folder. Choose the size and pick decorative paper to fit your occasion. In a few simple folds, you can have a handmade gift box. Click here for details.
