Gift Wrap Ideas (11): Celebrations and Events
Continuing with the 12 Days of Christmas Gift Wrap series. Today is day 11. I am covering specific celebrations and events, and some creative gift wrap relating to them.
These creative gems caught my eye from around the internet:
1. GET WELL SOON
I love this idea using recycled medicine jars from Jaimejofisher as a get well soon gift. Though you won’t get much inside them. The little pill shaped notes would be a perfect little boost for someone needing a pick me up.
Everyone loves presents, and everyone – especially students love cash. Its always great to have a fun way to gift wrap them. These little graduation cap boxes from Crafts Unleashed are a great way to give cash as a graduation gift.
She’s not the original poster, but I found this great new job gift in a jar over at 30somethingurbangirl. The Jar becomes the packaging, and will be great for storing loose change once you’ve used the contents.
4. BON VOYAGE
Thepapercraftpost Have a fantastic tutorial for these gorgeous little matchbox suitcases. Complete with luggage “bon voyage” tags, these are fantastic.
Captainandthegypsykid have tied the gifts onto plastic zoo animals. Quite random perhaps, but very cute.
5. NEW BABY / BABY SHOWER
Anastasiamariecards has decorated a card (but it could easily be used to decorate a gift) by using cut outs of baby clothes and teeny clothes pegs. You could perhaps make a vertical clothes line, and string the clothes from it for even more impact.
6. BACK TO SCHOOL
My kids don’t get gifts for going back to school (they will be straight on to child services now they know its a “thing”) – but if they did, i’d be making these pencil packages from ikatbag
7. TEACHER GIFT
Willowday takes giving the teacher an apple to a whole new level – wrapping the gift up as an apple.
8. FATHERS DAY
And perhaps a little bit sexist – this gift not necessarily for dads – perfect for any DIY Enthusiast. I just love that hammer cookie cutter. And the tape measure as ribbon is gorgeous.
This picture was found on pinterest, but unfortunately I couldn’t find a link to the original post.
Another fathers option is to use letters from your kids. Claraandmacy – Notonthehighstreet have this for sale over at Not on the High Street, but you could easily recreate this for free with a photocopier (for multiple wrap) – taping individual sheets together – or just use kids writing sheets / drawings.
9. WEDDING / ENGAGEMENT
Bklynbride Have used this cut out man and woman shape, and stuck paper behind. Such a cute and simple idea.
And home-made-gifts-made-easy have found a gorgeous way of gifting money to the bride and groom (though maybe a $1 bill is a little stingy!). Follow their link for foundling instructions.
And finally, retirement. Especially for someone quoting the office, i love this cute idea with paper scissors – found unloaded directly from pinterest.
I hope you enjoyed these gift wrapping ideas. I’d love to hear your favourites – or any other ideas you think are awesome. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the gift wrapping series.
