Christmas wrapping inspiration

(148 Posts)

I always do a "theme" for my Christmas presents every year, last year the children's presents were made to look like ballerina's and toy soldiers, and the adults were silver paper with white ribbon and white poinsetta's. This years children's presents are being wrapped to look like ginger bread houses but I need inspiration for my adults. Can you post your past wrapping creations if you have any please flowers

Holy shit. Really? Would you do my wrapping? Mine is of the tinfoil as wrapping paper, don't even need sellotape calibre...

MrsCrimbo74 Wed 04-Oct-17 16:32:35

Wrapping is my "happy place" I love it, the kids couldn't give a sh*t what it looked like so it's all for my own pleasure. I do have to add that I do it for my friends children and nieces and nephews where as my own ds just gets normal wrapping paper, I do however wrap his father christmas presents with personalised labels

Last years childrens presents were wrapped to look like father christmas stuck in a chimney

Have you any photos? I wouldn't even know where to start..

Holy shit, I love you. I cant even wrap straight, DH is the wrapper in this house, I adore nice wrapping though

Omg your labels! How, where did you get them. I am so old fashioned it never occurred to me you could get labels, I spent hours last year trying ti stamp out names with teeny individual letters and the end kept coming off, looked bloody crap.

Wow! A couple of years ago I bought Christmas fabric, & Christmas tea towels for small enough gifts, & did the Japanese style fabric wrapping - I can't remember what it's called. Enjoyed not using paper & the tea towels made a bonus extra gift! Sourced fabric from charity shops. My sister has done lovely things with paper snowflakes.

Wow, acts seriously impressive wrapping! Im just happy if the paper meets in the middle grin . I don't have suggestions but I bet Pinterest would be a good place to look for inspiration.

Wow. I thought that I was fairly proficient (and obsessed) at wrapping and fancying up my gifts but yours are something else. Amazing.

@tootiredtothink
Look on amazon for labels. I'm sure I saw personalised Ines yesterday

CowOnTheMoon Wed 04-Oct-17 18:04:39

Foil as wrapping paper?! shock genius

kitkatoz Wed 04-Oct-17 20:24:47

No inspiration to share to help you but I'm in awe

Thanks guys, I literally just designed the labels myself in word and printed them off. I'll attach some more pics, it really is just a hobby, and people at work get me to do their wrapping for them as well.

The pics are of an advent calendar that I made for my ds, the single bauble is a name tag that I attached to my adult gifts the year before last, and the baubles are something that I made for all my ds's friends at nursery, they each had their own personalised one with their name in.

And last pic, this is an example of the wrapping that I did for my friend at work's wife for their birthday.

MrsCrimbo74 Thu 05-Oct-17 10:01:15

As there's only a few of you, if you'd like to PM your childs name and your e-mail address I'll do the Father christmas labels for you and send them over.

OhHolyFuck Thu 05-Oct-17 10:02:09

Wow @MrsCrimbo74 that's next level wrapping!

Piccolino2 Thu 05-Oct-17 10:03:05
