5 Spring Gift Wrap Ideas

February 13, 2016

Hello everyone, are you ready for some gift wrap inspiration for Spring? I really enjoyed putting together this post for you about gift wrap ideas for your upcoming celebrations. My fingers are crossed that you will like it too. Using some wrapping paper from Zazzle along with goodies from my craft closet, I pulled together 5 pretty gifts for 5 different types of people and occasions, all with a fresh Spring theme.

5 Spring Gift Wrap Ideas

Before deciding how to wrap your present, you have to consider who it is for and the colors that you think the recipient will like the most. Collect all of the little elements. You won’t use them all, but at least you have them laid out before you to build your ideas from.

1. TEENAGE BOY BIRTHDAY – My first gift is for a pretend nephew with the first name Andrew, and he just turned 12. So I went with something that could be a little childlike but also cool teenage boy, too.

I used two gift wraps from Zazzle, the Black and White Modern Concrete Pattern Wrapping Paper and the Customizable Black & White Grid Pattern Gift Wrap. I created a band using the Grid Pattern wrap, then I pulled out a straw from my kitchen stash and formed an “A” using scissors, then with black washi tape, I wrapped it together and added copper wire to the top.

I really love the Black and White Modern Concrete Pattern Wrapping Paper. I have so many more ideas for it but this one works for a teenage boy. I added some stars for a little fun and tied the A with gold leather.

For these two gift ideas, I’ve used the Modern Black and White Dalmatian Spots Wrapping Paper and the Black & White Grid paper. With various papers, handmade crepe paper flowers, washi tapes, etc. I created these two gifts shown below. I find it really helpful to decide on everything you want for the gift by land things side by side on a white bare table so it becomes a bit of a mood board to you. As you look at everything with a critical eye, you start to come up with some clever and creative combinations. The key is not to stress or think to hard. And have fun! Create some fun arrangements with color and pattern. Inject your own style and personality into your wrapping as well as taking into consideration the recipient – their age, gender, occasion, etc.

BIRTHDAY TODDER BOY (OR GIRL) – This little gift, using the Modern Black and White Dalmatian Spots Wrapping Paper, is for my little boy who turned TWO this week. Instead of hiding such a pretty card away, I thought it should be part of the display so I folded back the envelope flap and tucked it into the front. I really love this paper, it’s so versatile and I can see doing all sorts of creative projects with it.

EASTER BRUNCH FOR FEMALE FRIEND – Here is what became of the Black & White Grid paper and the flowers I showed a moment ago (above) laid out. I formed a little paper cone, put the flowers inside and hung some ribbons through the bottom and secured around the cone. It’s so simple and easy but very graphic and makes a bold statement. This is a gift for a stylish girlfriend, one who is a Kate Spade kind of girl – a bit preppy and definitely loves bold and graphic design.

MOTHER’S DAY – My next gift idea is with the Gold Foil Polka Dots Modern Teal Mint Metallic Wrapping Paper and some supplies from my closet, including origami papers and washi tape. This is a very Japanese-inspired look. It’s for Mother’s Day, I know she loves pretty pastels and delicate prints.

BABY SHOWER – I did the same thing with the card as I did earlier, I let the card show on the front of the package. I’ve used the Faux Bois Wrapping Paper and then the Herringbone Pattern Faux Gold Foil Teal Geometric Wrapping Paper to create a thin band around the gift. You’ll notice that I didn’t end up using a lot of ribbon on any of my gifts. I think it’s because I’m currently not that into it as much as I was in years’ past. We all go through phases. Currently, my obsession is paper of all kinds. Oh, and I tucked a Aqua Blue Very Merry Christmas Gift Tag inside, I just used the opposite side so you can’t see the “Very Merry” message. I believe in reusing Xmas tags all year round so they don’t go to waste.

    These are all gorgeous looks. I have looked at designing my own gift wrap on Zazzle but I think it’s a bit expensive so I would only buy it if I came up with one really special design.
