Beautiful and unusual packaging can be made quickly, while you can always use different interesting materials as decoration.
Kraft paper decoration is suitable for all types of gifts, from food boxes to various interesting items — both simple souvenirs and expensive beautiful things. Along with it, various decor options and accessories are used. Here are some interesting options for such design.
Ideas and ways of packaging
Retro style parcels
Those who appreciate such a design will no doubt like a gift in a parcel package. This style will require old stamps or modern samples with an antique design, as ll as a multi-colored thick tourniquet.
If you fold several multi-colored bundles in an original way, you can get a beautiful antique package design with stamps pasted in the corner and a specific addressee.
For those who do not have time for the original packaging, there is a simpler and no less beautiful option — these are decorative ribbons. In any case, ribbons in different variations give gift boxes a festive look. They can simply bandage the package. If you prefer sophisticated decoration options, use shiny original ribbons that can be beautifully interlaced.
A gift neatly packed in kraft paper can be pasted over with multi-color tape. This simple design style allows you to quickly and tastefully make elegant and festive packaging.
Leaves from autumn trees
Autumn leaves can serve as decoration stamps to make the kraft paper packaging material more unusual. To do this, you need gold acrylic paint and a leaf from an autumn tree.
Before decorating, it is better to hold the sheet under pressure (for example, it can be a thick book).
Dip the prepared autumn leaf in acrylic paint, attach it to paper — and in a few minutes your original packaging will be ready. The main thing is that the patterns are unique and beautiful in any variations.
This flor is one of the variants of the flor theme. An unusual decor is created on a small piece of foam, where cotton buds are attached, and the stem is made from a segment of a cocktail tube. With a dandelion design complemented by ribbons, a cord, lace in a certain color, the gift wrapping should look like a single composition. Additionally, you can use several design options, for example, applying a pattern to paper, decorating with stamps or sparkles.
Kraft paper is one of the materials for unusual creative ideas, because it can be applied to different types of patterns. The design of the packaging can be decorated with “peas” using the back of a pencil and paints of different colors. This uncomplicated drawing will look impressive and unusual.
If you prefer monochrome design methods, in this case, use one color of paint.
As one of the decoration options — cardboard hearts. Hearts are cut out of multi-colored cardboard and strung on a bundle like a garland, then you can decorate a gift with this beautiful “garland” of hearts, but first wrap it in craft paper.
Decoration “under the rope”
Coarse tourniquet is ll suited for kraft packaging. According to the step-by-step instructions, first the gift must be carefully wrapped, while tying it with a rope, not paying much attention to straight lines, then insert a sprig of lavender and rosemary under the tourniquet. Alternatively, a lollipop or several cinnamon sticks tied together can be placed under the tourniquet.
The image of the drawings on the packaging
You can easily draw anything on craft paper. Something like augmented reality is currently in vogue — the image continues the theme of the scenery. It could be a crudely drawn car carrying a Christmas tree, or a flor in a beautiful vase.
The composition can additionally be decorated with stamps, applications, stickers, and here an important condition is ingenuity.
If there is nothing to put under the tourniquet on the gift box, hang something on it. It can be sets in bright candy wrappers, decorative keys, inexpensive pendants, bells, hand-tied pompoms, small balls and a lot of everything at the discretion of your imagination.
Adding a photo to a presentation
Instead of the “Dear Vasily” card, you can add a beautiful photograph to the present with the image of Vasya. Printing a couple of photographs is a short process.
Hover, stop your choice on the coolest photo, where Vasily was unforgettably beautiful and happy during this period of his life.
Packaging with decorative stitching
In any idea of decorating a presentation, it is important to choose a convenient and familiar execution technology. Due to the fact that kraft paper lends itself ll to sewing with a needle, gift wrapping can be beautifully decorated with decorative stitches and tied with a wide bow.
Final stamp on the gift
A printed gift is impressive and creative. You can buy a seal today, but it’s better to make it yourself from a coin or a metal button, while sticking it on a wine cork. Instead of sealing wax, you can use paraffin from a candle, beeswax, or multi-colored rods from glue guns.
You can make an original print by cutting a pattern on a cork from a plastic bottle with a soldering iron.
The quality and natural look of the kraft bag makes it a good presentation material. Decorations on the package, sometimes even as a simple ribbon, create a spectacular appearance in a colorful style. As a decoration option, the top of the bag is bent and perforated with a hole punch, where a ribbon or tourniquet is inserted into the holes, which can be tied into a beautiful bow. In another decorating option, the top of the bag can be left flat and the lace can be fixed with glue.
When decorating a gift, the imagination should not be limited by anything. It is important to take into account the wishes of the person to whom it is intended. It is allod to combine the design theme with a specialty or hobbies. Gifts in kraft paper for an artist can be decorated with wire notes, for a tourist — draw a continent or stick it on, cutting it out of an atlas, and for someone who loves to read, you can beautifully decorate a gift with a quote from his favorite work.
And remember, no matter how the gift is packaged, make a present from the heart and with love.
