When it comes to gift-giving, it's the thought that counts... but you'll get a lot more brownie points if your thoughts are wrapped in beautiful handmade paper and trimmings. Get a head start on these four gift-wrapping DIYs right now, and make sure your packages are dressed to impress.

Potato printing is an age-old technique for creating fun, funky homemade gift wrap. The video above has all the instructions you need (or find step-by-step photos here).

How cute are these felt gift toppers? Watch the video for the how-to, or find step-by-step instructions here.

This felt ball garland is meant as a decoration, but I think it would look pretty snazzy adorning a package, too. Try wrapping one around a gift wrapped in simple kraft paper... very nice. Watch the video, or find step-by-step instructions here.

And finally, a fun tip from Maxwell for creating holiday cards (for sending in the mail, and for packages too) from textures you find around the house. All you need is a printer with a scanner to make something truly unique.

Thanks for watching, and happy crafting!
