Gift Wrap Ideas (4): Gift Wrap for Kids
This is the fourth day in my 12 days of Christmas Gift Wrap ideas: Gift Wrap for Kids
When I first started writing these posts, I intended to call this post Gift Wrap for Boys…….But before the gender stereotype police start boycotting the site – I know! These ideas may be just as popular with girls – and the floral, butterflies, ribbons, princesses and bunnies overload I had planned for the “girls” theme may well be perfect for some boys.
A genius simple idea from Linesacross. Almost as perfect as the plastic toy itself.
These superheroes bursting from their parcels make me smile every time I see them. These are from a blog called I make things and Stuff . I think I would be very sad to see these ripped open. My kids would have no such qualms and would wade right in.
Another great and simple idea from Linesacross to make strips of road around the package, and attach cars to the side.
Growing up Bilingual Had a slightly more complicated method of wrapping a monster truck – making the parcel into the terrain.
With most of these ideas, simplicity seems to be the key in really effective gift wrapping. Older And Wisor have used a Starwars font and phrase to theme this Starwars wrapping paper.
A clod of astroturf and some dinos Growing Spaces would be perfect for some dinosaur enthused kids. I know a few kids shoe would be ecstatic to receive this. – no matter whats inside!
6. FISHBOWL GIFT WRAP
Martha Stewart has a tutorial for this fishy watery gift wrap. I may add a small stick and string to make a fishing rod if I was ding this. You could tie a worm to the end as the gift tag.
I love the hand drawn graphics from Home Heart Craft on these Cartoon gift wraps. Really bright and effective.
8. FUNNY FACES
A funny face couldn’t be simpler to wrap a kids gift. Heres an example from Eltallerdepepa
A Subtle Revelry goes one step further with a whole family.
9. ANGRY BIRDS
There are loads of Angry Birds gift wrap available to buy – but how much better is this DIY version made by a mum on pinterest here.
Its completely missed our house (thank goodness from the sounds of it), but Minecraft is a huge deal for so many kids. This diy box from Craftibilities is an easy way to gift for a minecraft party.
