How to pack New Year's gifts: 8 stylish ideas
[PAGED_GALLERY] [GPAGE] Textile napkin [/ GPAGE]
A pair of fresh crunchy baguettes and a jar of marmalade wrapped in a festive napkin and complemented by a wooden juicer. This is one of thousands of edible gift options for cooking lovers and real aesthetes. Try a little fantasy on this subject: instead of marmalade, put a jar of paste in a napkin, and instead of baguettes - home-made pancakes.
You can make cute tags with your own hands by cutting small squares from thick paper and treating their edges with curly scissors.

Agree, this is the best packaging for soft gifts: mittens, scarves and woolen socks. Fold together two sheets of kraft paper, draw on them the shape of a star, sock, heart or Christmas tree. Cut the shape, put a gift between the layers and sew on the typewriter with a contrasting thread (red or gold), stepping back from the edge about 1-2 cm.
[GPAGE] Paper Cuts [/ GPAGE]
Wrap the gift in white wrapping paper, and on top of it stretch a small strip of decorative paper in the center. Fill the packaging with a cord and attach a small part that will complement the gift. Stick a sticker with congratulations on top.
[GPAGE] Potatoes and paints [/ GPAGE]
Take a piece of fabric so that you can freely fit a gift into it. Halve a large potato and carefully cut the shape of the letter with a knife. Blot excess moisture with a paper towel, apply acrylic paint to the letter cut out. Then press the “seal” to the fabric.
[GPAGE] Old maps [/ GPAGE]
Pages from the old atlas and roadmaps look very stylish as packaging. And instead of tying the bows on top, add unusual details to the packaging: paint a leaf of a houseplant with a gold spray, use a bright button and lace, or make a flower from fabric patches.
[GPAGE] Newspapers and twine [/ GPAGE]
Food white paper is a great backdrop for Christmas-inspired silhouettes. Print and cut the stencils, transfer them to newspaper pages or brown kraft paper, and then cut out the silhouettes. Glue them to the box in a few places and tie a gift with a simple twine.
[GPAGE] Hairpins and buckles [/ GPAGE]
Beautiful belt buckles and hairpin parts are ideal for decorating a gift box. The buckle will not only give a glamorous look to the gift, but also fix the ribbon. So the next time you want to throw out the old belt, think about how a nice buckle can decorate a gift.

Use your own hand-made wrapping paper with stamps and metallic inks, which you can buy at hobby stores. Combine color and patterns.
