Hello December, hello Christmas time!! Not gonna lie to you, I’m a sucker for all things christmas-y and I love gift wrapping. Literally though, I wrap my gifts with so much passion, one might think I’m a professional wrapping elf from the north pole. Nah, too cold – let’s say I’m a Hawaiian gift wrapping elf :D Therefore I decided that my first ever Christmas post up on Miss Getaway just needed to be about that topic.
Remember when I teamed up with the peeps from Clixxie in summer and created the lovely Polaroid display? Well, I came up with the idea to use their Polaroids for another DIY and here it is… My DIY on how to fancy up brown wrapping paper with christmas Polaroids.
What you’ll need:
- Brown postal wrapping paper (really cheap shizzle^^)
- Scissors, adhesive tape
- Polaroid pictures with christmas-y motives
- Decoration such as: Fancy cords, washi tape, greens, peppermint canes, little Christmas ornaments, ….
Let’s get started:
First off, you might want to pack your non-square presents into boxes because not only will this make the wrapping process so much easier, it will also look so much nicer underneath the Christmas tree
. Or at least that’s my opinion, I love them big ones! Then you simply wrap the boxes and gifts in the brown wrapping paper and seal it off with lots and lots of adhesive tape. Easy as that! The next step actually is where the FUN comes in. Because now you can get creative! Use cords, washi tape or other things to decorate your gifts. Select a lovely Polaroid print and put that on as well. Hell, I even went crazy on one and splashed it with some white paint!!
As for the Polaroids. I choose random Christmas and winter motives that I found on Pinterest or Instagram. However, you could use private pictures of yours or little Christmas card motives as well.You could also use the blank white space underneath the picture to tag the gifts so they won’t get mixed up. I think the Polaroids add a bit of individuality to the gifts and instantly make them appear special and more thoughtful. What do you think?
