Gift wrap­ping

How beautiful to pack a gift for the New Year?

New Year is a mag­i­cal hol­i­day. This is a great oppor­tu­ni­ty to exchange gifts. The lat­ter should be not only use­ful or cute, but also beau­ti­ful­ly pack­aged. Today there are many oppor­tu­ni­ties to make a pret­ty present. It will turn out to pack a gift not only in the store, but also with your own hands. There are a lot of pre­sen­ta­tion options.

Varieties of packaging

You can pack a present for the New Year in var­i­ous ways. In this case, dif­fer­ent mate­ri­als are used from paper to tex­tiles. Let us con­sid­er in detail what types of fes­tive pack­ag­ing exist, and how they dif­fer.

  • Paper. Fes­tive pack­ag­ing made from mate­ri­als such as crepe, card­board or kraft are very pop­u­lar today. These types of paper are often used to cre­ate var­i­ous dec­o­ra­tions.
  • Tex­tile. As for woven raw mate­ri­als, burlap, silk, kni­tar, linen, and felt can be used to wrap New Year’s gifts. To build beau­ti­ful and neat woven pack­ag­ing, you do not need to stock up on a lot of mate­r­i­al. Often, one gift takes no more than one minia­ture piece of tex­tile.
  • Scarves, tols. Very cute and soft pack­ag­ing for New Year’s gifts can be made from unnec­es­sary scarves and tols. More­over, the gift can be wrapped with a scarf, which serves as anoth­er addi­tion­al gift after the pack­age is opened.
  • Old sater. If there are old and already unnec­es­sary saters in the clos­et, then you can form cute gift wrap­pings from them.
  • Clas­sic Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions. Very often beau­ti­ful­ly wrapped Christ­mas gifts are com­ple­ment­ed by cute details in a tra­di­tion­al way. These include var­i­ous Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions, pine branch­es, wreaths, cones or gar­lands. With the list­ed ele­ments, gift wrap­ping begins to play with new col­ors and looks much more inter­est­ing.
  • Orna­men­tal decor. The use of such decor also makes the gift wrap­ping more orig­i­nal and attrac­tive. Orna­men­tal dec­o­ra­tions include shin­ing sparkles, flors, New Year’s fig­urines, but­tons and sets.
  • Oth­er mate­ri­als. It is quite pos­si­ble to “dilute” the gift wrap­ping of a New Year’s present with oth­er inter­est­ing details. For exam­ple, it can be col­ored ropes, charm­ing bows, rib­bons, twine and oth­er sim­i­lar addi­tions.
  • Pom­poms. An unusu­al detail for wrap­ping a New Year’s gift is cute pom­poms. They can be com­bined with col­ored threads or twine. Col­ored pom­poms can dec­o­rate even sim­ple paper bags.


There are many ways to beau­ti­ful­ly wrap a New Year’s gift. Most of them are quite sim­ple and under­stand­able. It is quite pos­si­ble to cope with the design of the pre­sen­ta­tion on your own, if you fol­low the sim­ple instruc­tions. Let’s con­sid­er some of them in more detail.

First, let’s look at one of the sim­plest meth­ods for wrap­ping a New Year’s gift. In this case, you will need qual­i­ty gift or kraft paper. Her leaf will need to very care­ful­ly wrap the pre­pared gift. Next, the pack­age will need to be tied up with a dec­o­ra­tive beau­ti­ful rib­bon of spec­tac­u­lar col­ors. From above it is per­mis­si­ble to attach any addi­tion. For exam­ple, it can be a mini-snowflake, a spruce branch or a rib­bon bow. At the final stage, sprin­kle the present with arti­fi­cial snow.

Instead of snow, they usu­al­ly use a sprin­kle of con­fet­ti or sparkles.

If you want to arrange a New Year’s gift in a more orig­i­nal and non-triv­ial way, you should look at anoth­er way. Gift wrap­ping in the form of a large can­dy (she may be small) - a great idea to impress a girl or boy. Usu­al­ly such bright and expres­sive gifts are giv­en to chil­dren.

To pack a gift in this way, you will need to pre­pare the fol­low­ing nec­es­sary com­po­nents:

  • plain dec­o­ra­tive paper;
  • scis­sors;
  • a cou­ple of bright col­or­ful rib­bons.

And now will ana­lyze in stages how to prop­er­ly form such an orig­i­nal hol­i­day pack­ag­ing:

  • the first step is to build a tube shape;
  • then the ends of the paper should be tied with rib­bons so that the pack­age looks like a can­dy.

As you can see, this pack­age is formed very sim­ply and quick­ly. If desired, it can be made a lit­tle more inter­est­ing and brighter. To do this, it is per­mis­si­ble to stick arti­fi­cial snow, small snowflakes, a New Year’s toy or con­fet­ti to the “can­dy”. Many peo­ple pre­fer to com­ple­ment these wrap­pers with pat­terned designs.

If you want to pack a gift so that it looks ele­gant and expen­sive, you should refer to this method. For this you will need the fol­low­ing com­po­nents:

  • red gift paper;
  • wide gold­en rib­bon;
  • translu­cent scar­let rib­bon.

And now let’s take a clos­er look at how these com­po­nents can be used to form a rich pack­age for a New Year’s gift.

  • First, the present should be wrapped in scar­let gift paper.
  • Next comes the gold­en rib­bon. She ties the present with a cross.
  • A translu­cent scar­let rib­bon is passed over the gold­en rib­bon.

If every­thing is done cor­rect­ly, the gift will turn out to be incred­i­bly spec­tac­u­lar and expres­sive due to attrac­tive pack­ag­ing.

If you are prepar­ing a cute New Year’s present for your girl­friend or moth­er, then you should fol­low a dif­fer­ent instruc­tion. First, pre­pare a num­ber of nec­es­sary com­po­nents, which include:

  • round tem­plate;
  • pen­cil;
  • card­board;
  • scis­sors;
  • ruler;
  • dec­o­ra­tive rib­bon.

Now let’s look at the step-by-step process of mak­ing such a charm­ing hol­i­day pack­age.

  • In order to prop­er­ly pack the cho­sen present, you must first lay a piece of card­board on the table and cir­cle the tem­plate so that the image looks like a kind of dding rings.
  • You should use a tem­plate whose para­me­ters will match the gift.
  • Next, care­ful­ly shift­ing the tem­plate, you need to divide the edges of the cir­cles into 4 sec­tors. In the mid­dle of each of the sketched cir­cles, a rhom­bus should come out. Cut out the result­ing rings, and then bend them inward.
  • In the cen­tral part of such a blank, you will need to put the select­ed sur­prise. Next, you need to tie the result­ing design with a rib­bon.
  • It is per­mis­si­ble to let in a lit­tle imag­i­na­tion and com­ple­ment the present with spec­tac­u­lar shin­ing sparkles, snowflakes or con­fet­ti — there are a lot of options for com­ple­ment­ing the gift.

The next way to dec­o­rate a gift involves the use of spe­cial craft paper. In addi­tion, it is desir­able to have at least min­i­mal draw­ing skills. The process will require the fol­low­ing com­po­nents:

  • thick kraft paper;
  • pen­cil;
  • scis­sors.

Con­sid­er the detailed progress of work on cre­at­ing a beau­ti­ful hol­i­day pack­ag­ing.

  • The first step is to draw on a piece of paper the cor­rect draw­ing of the future pack­ag­ing of the New Year’s present. The cen­tral part of the square shape should cor­re­spond to the width of the gift, and 4 petals to its height.
  • On the mar­gin­al parts of the petals locat­ed on oppo­site sides, small oblong holes must be made. Be care­ful not to tear or crush the mate­r­i­al.
  • The next step is to take the tips of the oth­er two petals, and then round them and slight­ly expand.
  • A select­ed present (for exam­ple, a sou­venir) must be care­ful­ly placed in the cen­ter. After that, the edges can be gen­tly bent and just as gen­tly stretched into the holes made before.

The result is a very beau­ti­ful and neat hol­i­day pack­ag­ing. Hov­er, it should be done care­ful­ly and care­ful­ly. No need to rush.

Fine gift pack­ings turn out from tex­tile mate­ri­als. You can also work with them at home. Presents dec­o­rat­ed in accor­dance with Japan­ese tech­nol­o­gy called “furoshi­ki” look very unusu­al and catchy. To fol­low this pop­u­lar pack­ag­ing method, stock up on a piece of very soft and light­ight fab­ric. It is desir­able that it be square.

As for the size of the woven seg­ment — it should cor­re­spond to the size of the gift that you plan to give. Next, the present is grad­u­al­ly wrapped in pre­pared tex­tiles and tied in a knot.

Cute New Year’s gifts look very unusu­al and inter­est­ing, wrapped in mate­ri­als such as felt, burlap or den­im. Thus, you can wrap a vari­ety of presents. It can be both var­i­ous sou­venirs or all sorts of lit­tle things, as ll as set gifts.

A great solu­tion for a New Year’s present is a boot. Pack­ag­ing of this kind can be bought in many stores, it is also pos­si­ble to build it on your own using fab­ric.

As dec­o­ra­tions for such pack­ag­ing, var­i­ous ele­ments in the New Year theme are suit­able.

The child will def­i­nite­ly like the gift, packed in a rich col­or bag. The lat­ter can be made from tex­tiles, sup­ple­ment­ed with small snowflakes, beads or minia­ture New Year’s toys.

Not bad idea — a sim­ple red bag, sim­i­lar to a bag in which San­ta Claus deliv­ers gifts. This pack­age should be tied with a beau­ti­ful fes­tive rib­bon. It is pos­si­ble to dec­o­rate a New Year’s gift with sets.

In most cas­es, these con­tain­ers are sup­ple­ment­ed with small snowflakes, sparkles, arti­fi­cial snow, con­fet­ti. It is per­mis­si­ble to cut out the sym­bol of the upcom­ing New Year, sup­ple­ment it with spec­tac­u­lar dec­o­ra­tions, and then put it on a gift box.

  • Tie the pack­age at the top with a nice and neat bow.
  • Glue beau­ti­ful lumi­nous stars and small snowflakes on the free ends.
  • From above, it will be nec­es­sary to attach a pre­pared small New Year’s toy to the bow. Most often, minia­ture angels, the Snow Maid­en, a snow­man or oth­er sim­i­lar heroes are tak­en for this.

Using the box, it will turn out to form anoth­er spec­tac­u­lar gift pack­age. This will require the fol­low­ing com­po­nents:

  • clean and loose box;
  • bright dec­o­ra­tive paper;

  • The next step is to wrap the gift in bright dec­o­ra­tive paper.
  • The edges of the paper must be care­ful­ly sealed.

  • Dec­o­rate it on one side with shin­ing stars or snowflakes. On the oth­er side, write the name of the per­son for whom the New Year’s gift is intend­ed.
  • From above, the select­ed win­ter toy of small sizes should be attached to the box. For exam­ple, it can be a Snow Maid­en, a Christ­mas tree, a snow­man.

There is also a fair­ly easy, bud­get method for cre­at­ing attrac­tive pack­ag­ing for a pre­sen­ta­tion. The fol­low­ing com­po­nents will be required here:

  • plain paper for pack­ag­ing;
  • rich and col­or­ful dec­o­ra­tive rib­bons;
  • minia­ture Christ­mas tree balls (it is desir­able that their col­or match­es the col­or of the rib­bon);
  • mul­ti-col­ored gel pens.

Now will ana­lyze the process of work­ing on the cre­ation of this pack­age.

  • Wrap the gift in paper. Then tie it nice­ly and neat­ly with rib­bons. The ends of the rib­bons can be arranged in the form of beau­ti­ful spi­rals.

  • red or col­ored fab­ric designed to com­ple­ment the bag;
  • nee­dle;
  • threads;
  • con­spic­u­ous sat­u­rat­ed col­or rib­bon.

This craft is made quite sim­ply.

  • First, sew a neat bag out of the select­ed fab­ric. To do this, you should take burlap (or oth­er mate­r­i­al of your choice), hav­ing mea­sured the present, you should trans­fer all cer­tain mea­sure­ments to tex­tiles.
  • Next, you need to cut out rec­tan­gles with dif­fer­ent sizes. There should be two. Sew them inside out. You can use both a nee­dle and thread and a sewing machine — act as it suits you.
  • Now you need to take the red fab­ric. From it form a pair of hearts. If you plan to give a gift to a loved one, they will need to be care­ful­ly sewn to the front of the bag.
  • At the final stage, you should attach a col­or­ful satin rib­bon so that the present in the pack­age is prop­er­ly tight­ened.

Beautiful ideas for decorating New Year’s gifts

Gifts for the New Year can be arranged in a vari­ety of ways. Presents can be put in box­es or bas­kets, wrapped in trans­par­ent film, placed in small pyra­mids, and so on. Of course, such solu­tions in them­selves look very inter­est­ing and attrac­tive, but gift wrap­ping will look even more styl­ish and orig­i­nal if you com­ple­ment its design with var­i­ous dec­o­ra­tions, for exam­ple, it can be:

  • a small pho­to­graph of the per­son to whom the present was pre­sent­ed;
  • dec­o­rat­ing a gift with a spruce branch;
  • minia­ture fig­urines of var­i­ous fairy-tale char­ac­ters, made in the New Year and win­ter themes;
  • bows and beau­ti­ful draw­ings;
  • cones of dif­fer­ent sizes;
  • small knit­ted details;
  • vanil­la sticks tied with red rib­bon;
  • small dec­o­ra­tive snowflakes;
  • spec­tac­u­lar decor in the form of a gar­land;
  • but­tons, beads or shiny stones;
  • images cut and past­ed on the pack­ag­ing, for exam­ple, a sym­bol of the com­ing year;
  • box­es dec­o­rat­ed with dried fruits look unusu­al (for exam­ple, it can be dry lemon or orange rounds);
  • a sprin­kle of glit­ter, arti­fi­cial hay or con­fet­ti.

New Year’s gifts can be dec­o­rat­ed not only with red dec­o­ra­tive paper. Pack­ages of bur­gundy, blue, turquoise, pur­ple, snow-white or brown col­ors look very beau­ti­ful and ele­gant. Small gift box­es wrapped in black or dark blue paper look styl­ish. So that such options do not look too gloomy, they can be sup­ple­ment­ed with bright Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions, light rib­bons or flors.

New Year’s gift bags can be very beau­ti­ful and del­i­cate. Their col­ors can also be very dif­fer­ent, as ll as the mate­r­i­al of man­u­fac­ture. Most often, bags are made of tex­tiles, but paper copies are also found. Both of these can be eas­i­ly done by hand.

Such pack­ages look brighter and more inter­est­ing if they are com­ple­ment­ed with con­trast­ing New Year and win­ter pat­terns, embroi­dered ani­mal faces, sewn on but­tons, woven snowflakes, snow­men and oth­er sim­i­lar details. Tight­ened bags can be mul­ti-col­ored rib­bons or tex­tile ropes.
