Do rolls of holiday wrapping paper leave you feeling uninspired this year? It's cool. You can always branch out to different mediums. In fact, knowing how to wrap presents without wrapping paper can make your gift-giving presentation more creative and unique than ever. There are so many cool alternatives to wrapping paper that you may never buy a roll of it again.
Pretty fabrics, scrap paper, and even kitchen staples can all replace wrapping paper. With a little creativity and out-of-the-box thinking, you can find some truly original, fun ways to wrap gifts with unexpected materials, many of which are probably even already in your house somewhere. It can turn gift-wrapping into a fun, and less expensive, activity, instead of yet another chore to complete for the holidays.
Why else would you want to forego the rolls of wrapping paper? Many people who are eco-conscious, for example, don't like the thought of all that single-use paper ending up in a landfill right after the holidays. It can be seen as an unnecessary waste. Other people just don't like the hassle of measuring and wrapping each gift individually. (Hey, it's tricky to get the optimum amount of wrapping paper for each box, OK?) Whatever the case, feel free to use these ideas to wrap gifts without wrapping paper as a jumping-off point for your own creative projects.
