I like to give and receive gifts, but LOVE to wrap them even more. I like to come up with creative and clever ways to present the gift that are a little out of the ordinary. No store bought wrap for me, but I still love quick gift wrap. The tall triangular box this gift came in presented me with a bit of a challenge. If I sat it on its end it resembled a bottle of liquor. It’s for my daughter’s best friend, Julie, who is a college student and a bottle of spirits would probably be readily enjoyed, but I didn’t want to mislead her – so I laid the box on its side.
My original idea was to hand draw the letters, but I only had 10 minutes to get it wrapped so I opted for some
- white wrapping paper
- a computer
- a printer
- blank printer paper
How to Make a Quick Gift Wrap
1. I first wrapped the box with white craft paper.
2. Next, I opened Microsoft Word on my computer. I set up the page for landscape orientation and used the font, Baskerville Old Face in a point size of 325. I changed the color for each letter and pressed the print button.
3. I glued the paper right onto the box.
4. Finally, I added the tulle ribbon bow for extra flair.
Tada! Quick, simple, unique – that’s my style.
