5 Fabric Wrapping Papers to Spice Up Your Presents

Wrapping up one’s gifts had been a long tradition for most of us. For the most part of our lives, some of us have definitely wrapped up a gift or two. But if you think about how much time you have spent on the gift wrap, it would not be surprised that we rarely exercise thought to plan for the kind of wrapping paper that is to be used. Hence, the result of the final wrap usually speaks for itself - a plain or sloppy wrap experience and presentation. To really spice up one’s presents, here are some suggestions to help you excel in making the presentation of the gifts exceptional and stunning.

The idea of using re-usable fabric is not unusual or new as it has been long adopted by the Japanese in their culture. For them, Furoshiki is the environment friendly wrapping cloth. Using techniques similar to origami, it has been adopted in gift wrapping and grocery shopping. If you are tired of using the same typical wrapping paper off your craft store, you may consider using the Furoshiki to refresh the wrapping experience and change the look of your gifts. Nowadays, it can come in the form of different colors, designs and styles. Feel free to explore this style of wrapping.

To make the gift wrap a part of the gift, it is vital to consider the exterior of your presents. Even though we always tell ourselves that we should not judge a book by its cover, it is not always the case in reality. Therefore, when making the gift wrap, adopt stripes of angel-hair tissue papers such as white or pink ones on top of the basic paper wrap. These are basically tangle-colored sheets of fiber pressed into a sheet, with little semi-transparent gap densities in-between. They also contain fairly open textures. Simply cut a small portion and wrap it round the central part, be it along the length or width of the present. Then tie it up with different widths or types of ribbons and design tags to spice up further the appearance.

Another kind of fabric paper wrapping is using metallic gold tissue papers. Crush a piece of such metallic gold paper for a nice effect and wrap around your gift. Next, tie it with glittering gold ribbons and glue gold colored stars of various shapes bought from the crafts supply store. This will give you a stunning presentation for your Christmas gifts.

Wrapping colored corrugated papers on your normal wrapping papers is also another method of making the wrap more interesting and exciting. Cut out a shape and color that complements best with your main wrapping paper. Cover it just on a portion of the main wrap, and tie it with raffia strings or tulle. Or a more adventurous attempt will be tearing the corrugated paper on the sides to create irregular edges. This is especially appropriate for rugged wrapping themes or creating wild looks and styles for the presents.

Research into different fabric cloth such as heart-shaped or cartoon-filled character patterns is also another way to spice up your gift wrap. Fabric cloth is recyclable, washable and reusable. For people who want an alternative to paper wrapping, fabric cloth is a viable option that has been made to overcome the restrictions of using paper. Best of all, it comes with wide range of gift sizes and shapes. Moreover, it is best adopted for gifts that come in unusual shapes such as wine bottles.

Having considered these alternative ideas for a fantastic gift wrap, you may want to explore into more varied styles and themes of gift wrap. Lots of people have found great satisfaction and fulfillment in wrapping up their own gifts. So the next time when you are to wrap a gift for a friend or colleague, think about the excitement and anticipation you can evoke from your recipient if you can truly show that you care and appreciate him or her.
