A Dozen Gift Wrapping Ideas You Can Do With the Kids

We've got a big list of inspiring links for the many of you heading into your annual wrapping frenzy. Each of these is a fun example of how to jazz up plain white or craft paper in simple ways. No need to dig out the traditional wrapping gear; instead, a handy supply of yarn, twine, ribbon, crafting wire, and markers is what you need. And maybe washi tape. Oh, and a date stamp perhaps?

Simply imagine each idea in the colours typical of the particular holiday you are celebrating. And have fun!
