Tired of using not so green gift tags? Use kraft paper, stamps, and yarn to personalize gift wrapping this year. We love the look and how easy it is to re-use the paper and yarn. Read on for our super simple step by step guide to personalizing your gift wrapping.

What you'll need:

Ingredients:

  • Presents
  • Kraft paper
  • Yarn
  • Paper towel
  • Stamp pad
  • Alphabet stamps
  • Holiday stamps (optional)

    Tools:

    • Packing tape (optional)
    • Scissors

    1. Cut paper to size for the gift.

    2. Wrap present in paper. If not using tape, follow step 7.

    3.. Press desired letter stamps into stamp pad and test on scrap paper.

    4. Decide where recipient's name should be placed and use letter stamps in stamp pad to spell out recipient's name on package.

    5. Do not press too hard, as this will cause the edges of the stamp to appear on the package.

    6. Embellish with optional holiday stamps.

    7. Wait for the ink to dry on package.

    8. Use wet paper towel to clean stamps.

    9. Use the yarn to tie the package.

    10. Admire your awesome gift wrapping job.
