Here is what you need:
12 x 12 Scrapbook Paper
Hot glue gun
These small gift packages are perfect for those little gifts like jewelry or socks that are hard to wrap. I had bought some boot socks for my niece online and they came in a very unattractive plastic baggie. Since I didn’t have a box and wanted something nicer than a gift bag, I pulled out my bin of craft paper and my glue gun and this is the result. These look like little clutch purses to me.
Even if you aren’t “crafty” I’m betting you can whip one of these up and impress everyone with your beautiful little packages. Here’s how.
Turn your paper over, printed side down. Fold each of the long sides of the paper in about a quarter inch.
Next, I folded the paper in half and glued the folded sides together with a bead of hot glue.
I inserted the ribbon and tied into a bow then trimmed the ends.
To create a gift holder for a smaller item like jewelry, I cut the scrap paper exactly in half and then followed the same instructions.
Make sure you turn your paper the right side up if your pattern has a right side – the party hats on this package are upside down, lol.
I went ahead and made a few of these to have on hand for birthdays, etc.
If you need scrapbook paper, here are some packs of paper that are similar to what I used.
And this more bold pattern would be fun, too.
I hope this inspires you to make some fun packaging for your friends and family.
