Fun and creative gift wrapping ideas for special gifts.
Sometimes it’s fun or important to use creative gift wrapping ideas.
Gift Wrap with Recycled Christmas Cards
For “green” wrapping ideas, try using gift wrap with recycled Christmas cards. It’s a great way to reuse some of those greeting cards you’ve been collecting.
Santa Triangle Box
This very easy Santa triangle box is decorated to look like Santa. It’s easy to change the size… before folding the box, the paper length is 3 times the width.
Pillow Box Santa
I love this cute pillow box Santa. Even if you don’t have all the special tools used, you could easily replicate it with scissors.
Reindeer Gift Bag
Attach a reindeer cutout from a Christmas card to a gift bag made from an envelope, or brown lunch bag to make a reindeer gift bag.
Reindeer Gift Bag
Another cute reindeer gift bag that uses construction paper and a red pompom.
Quick to make, you draw the reindeer body on the reindeer gift bag and add a head and antlers.
Rudolph Treat Box
This Rudolph treat box would be pretty easy to replicate without the specialized tools. Pompoms always make great Rudolph noses!
Snowman Gift Bag
This snowman gift bag is made with a white paper bag and scraps of cardstock.
Snowman Gift Jars
Decorate mason jars or recycled jars to look like these snowman gift jars.
Snowman Treat Box
Plan ahead to make this snowman treat box, but it can be re-used. You need a round box and styrofoam balls.
House Gift Bag
This house gift bag is made from a brown paper bag, and is really cute. It’s fairly simply created with cardstock and markers, as well as the lunch bag.
Christmas House Bag
See this festive Christmas house bag made with a red lunch size bag.
Board Game Gift Box
I love this idea for using an old board game to make a board game gift box.
Button Gift Wrap
Attach a button (or different sized buttons) to cork. Dip in paint and stamp plain wrapping paper, brown paper bags, butcher paper, or tissue paper to make button gift wrap.

Yule Log Gift Wrap
This fun Yule log gift wrap needs a little paint – and I would use brown, as it is a more authentic color.
