Framed Wrapping Paper

Love those boutique wrapping paper sheets but never had a reason to buy them? Here is a simple and quick craft idea to get your creative juices flowing and gives you a reason to get some of that adorable wrapping paper!

I found a Christmas frame on clearance and removed the canvas. You can also get inexpensive frames or artwork at the dollar store, Christmastree Shops, and at a craft store with a coupon.



Glued some wrapping paper onto the cardboard backing, then glued a contrasting cutout of another wrapping paper on top of that. It would look fine with just one pattern as well!


And that’s it! It’s inexpensive and can easily be updated.

Contrasting and matching patterns can be kind of a “huh?” thing but here are some really simple pattern matching ideas.


Simple Auction Basket Under $20

When you have no idea what theme your basket should be, Home Goods usually inspires something amazing. Owls are everywhere lately but I am totally in love with this little microwavable plush. The box is a shoe box I wrapped in fabric I had. For the filling, I used tissue paper then cut strips of orange card stock and curled. Intelex Hooty Microwavable Plus $9.99, Taja Tea Saffron & Mango Fusion $3.99, Owl Mug $4.99 for locations.



These tags I found a while ago at Home Goods. They come in a variety of shapes and colors with envelopes included. The font is called Wednesday from Vanessa Bays on
