    Stamped Gift Wrap

    Whether stacked under the tree or presented to a friend, these creatively wrapped presents set the tone for a memorable holiday gift exchange. Here are some beautiful ways to embellish store-bought gift wrap -- or make your own.

     

    Enclose gifts in special wrapping paper covered in impressions made with a square rubber stamp. For a uniform pattern, stamp a large sheet of paper repeatedly with the same stamp, leaving a small space between each impression. Or, stamp just the center of a piece of wrapping paper. A stamp rolling pin also makes an attractive pattern. Here, we applied several different colors to a sheet of white paper to create a muted design.

    Tissue Paper Bottle Wrap

    Forgo the predictable wine bag in favor of this easy alternative: Fold two layers of 9-by-12-inch tissue paper in half lengthwise. Tape folded edge to one edge of a 12-inch square of scrapbook paper. Wrap bottle, and tape. Cinch tissue at neck with a ribbon, and add a tag.

    Stick-On Design

    Use blank stickers from an office-supply store to create polka dots or to spell out a name with rubber stamps. For the paper, stick to solid-color wrapping, which is versatile and economical (it's often sold in thick rolls). You can also spruce it up with bands of decorative paper.

    Give a new life to empty potato-chip bags by dressing up your gifts in them. Cut open a potato-chip bag along its seam to reveal the shiny white or silver inside of the bag.

    Stamped Shopping Bag Gift Wrap

    Have shopping bags lying around the house? Repurpose them into festive gift wrap. Cut an open paper shopping bag along one fold and scissor out the bottom of the bag. Wrap your gift in the paper. Dip one end of  a wine cork into ink or a dark fruit juice and begin stamping patterns.

    Yarn-Embellished Gift Wrap

    Give holiday gifts unexpected panache by using leftover yarn in place of ribbon. Wind cotton or wool yarn around presents (solid-color paper looks best) a few times for thin stripes or several times more for thick ones. Use a fuzzy yarn to give packages a cozy texture. Combine different yarns for colorful striations. Knot strands tightly on the bottom of each box. If desired, tie a bow on top.

  • Create a wintry scene on a wrapped present using a paper-dolls technique. Enlarge the two-tree template to desired size; cut out. Accordion-fold a piece of paper to the width of the template. Trace the template onto top fold. Make "ornaments" with a screw punch. Cut out and unfurl trees. Adhere with a glue stick or spray adhesive.

    Vintage Linen Wrap

    Wrap goods in vintage napkins, handkerchiefs, or other linens graced with lively patterns, and the packaging itself will serve as an added gift. Look for linens at flea markets or online. Fabrics are particularly helpful when wrapping articles whose shapes don't lend themselves to paper. The rest is a cinch: Gather fabric around item; tie with ribbon.

    Button Gift Wrap

    This button-stamped gift wrap is fun to make. Affix button to a cork with double-sided tape. Place plain paper on a piece of felt or a folded piece of fabric (this cushions the paper so the mark will be even). Top with a pretty button tied on with baker's twine.

    Jingle Bells Wrap

    Re-create the sound of Santa's sleigh with a small bell attached to Christmas parcels. Purchase the bells at crafts stores, and use lengths of thin ribbon or cord to secure to packages. The box shown here is also decorated with a band of velvet ribbon.

  • Here's our idea of thinking outside the box: interweaving ribbons to dress up a gift. The weaving begins with a single ribbon stretched across the top of the package, its loose ends fixed to the bottom with double-sided tape.

    Purse-Shaped Package

    This package is made from a sheet of heavy, textured paper folded around a tissue-wrapped gift. The outer layer is a 12-by-27-inch piece of Japanese kozo paper (commonly known as rice paper and available from specialty paper stores) backed with green paper. Use a ruler or bone folder, available from art-supply stores, to make neat creases 9 inches, 12 inches, and 21 inches from a short side of the paper. Enclose the gift, bind the package with a green satin ribbon, and finish it off with a slim brown ribbon tied in an elegant knot.

    Custom-Print Wrapping Paper

    Dancing Santas not your style? Custom-print your own wrapping paper using plain old rubber stamps. For a look that's contemporary, not scrapbooky, stick to clean, graphic shapes and patterns, and press beyond common color combos: Try celery ink on olive paper or shimmery gold on natural kraft paper. You can also stamp names in block letters (or write them with a matching gel pen).

    Tassel Gift Wrap

    What they lack in suspense, these semitransparent plastic vessels make up for in drama. We smoothed gold foil tape around the bottom of every lid and topped each one with a regal tassel. Attach the tassel by making a hole in the lid with a craft drill, inserting the tail, and knotting it. To size tassels to suit different containers, just give them little "haircuts."

    Brightly Striped Gift Wrap

    Bright stripes revive even your lamest wrap attempt much better than a sad pile of scissor-curled ribbon. Use fluorescent artist's tape or plastic lacing (that stuff you braided into key chains during recess as a kid). Colors really sizzle when they're contrasted against paper in a rich, muted shade, like brown or mustard, or a more organic texture, such as a marbled pattern (top right). Tiny cards with matching envelopes make nice gift tags, or you can multipurpose some mini sticky notes for a neat postmodern touch.

    Nature-Inspired Gift Wrap

    Accenting sprigs, berries, and leaves with glitter, silver paint, or microbeads turns packages into natural wonders.

    Clockwise from top left: Tied up in a bow, mistletoe makes a truly romantic wrap. For a two-tone pair of magnolia leaves that makes a modern statement, combine a natural leaf with one that's spray-painted silver. Make holly pop against crimson paper by silvering the berries: Paint berries with glue, then sprinkle with microbeads. Seeded eucalyptus turns sculptural atop a silver box when the leaves are painted with glue, then coated with glitter. Cedar with a hint of glitter looks enchanting on a tiny box; lightly dust sprig with spray adhesive, then dip in glitter. Vintage string, in Silver; vintage ribbon, in Silver; and silk-satin ribbon; tinseltrading.com.
