How beautiful and original to pack a gift in kraft paper?


  1. Pecu­liar­i­ties
  2. Ideas and ways of pack­ag­ing

We all love to receive gifts, and pack­ag­ing plays a sig­nif­i­cant role in pre­sent­ing a pre­sen­ta­tion. Recent­ly, more and more often when mak­ing a gift, craft paper is used. For any hol­i­day, it is more pleas­ant to receive a beau­ti­ful­ly pack­aged sur­prise. Con­sid­er how to wrap a gift so that it is orig­i­nal and taste­ful.


It is not nec­es­sary to have spe­cial skills, or spend a lot of your time in order to aes­thet­i­cal­ly arrange a gift. A few min­utes, a lit­tle imag­i­na­tion — and the orig­i­nal craft-style sur­prise is ready. 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.

decorative ribbons

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.

multi-colored tape

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.

Craft package

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.
