12 DIY Kraft Paper Gift Wrap Ideas

Take plain kraft paper gift wrap and make it pop with these 12 DIY kraft paper gift wrap ideas.

When it comes to gift giving, my philosophy is the outside should make the recipient want to tear the paper off immediately to see what's hiding inside. Having a well wrapped gift shows you cared enough to get a little gift-a-roo for that someone special, but you also took the time to make it look pretty. If the gift inside is a little meh (this happens people!), at least the outside looks like a million bucks! If you are giving someone a simple little token of your affection, it will have a bigger impact if the packaging is on point. Trust me.

I love keeping a roll of kraft wrapping paper on hand because it is so versatile. It's basically a blank canvas just begging to be decorated with any color or pattern! The neutral color works for all occasions. You can use it for a birthday, anniversary, or even a boy baby shower! I usually keep a few classic ribbon colors around so I have one that will compliment any special occasion. Obviously my ribbon wrapping trick works, but I wanted to see how other people jazzed up their kraft wrapping paper. So, I did a search and complied all of the lovely ideas I came across. I am now thinking I really need to step-up my kraft gift wrapping with some additional touches. I need to compile a list of crafty items (outside of just ribbon) to keep on hand so I can rule the gift wrapping game!

Have you ever used kraft paper to wrap a gift? Did you leave it plain, or did you put your own personal touch on it?
