DIY Gift Wrap{Imperfectly Polished}


Hi CSI Readers! I’m Jessie from Imperfectly Polished and I’m back today to share a super simple DIY gift wrap for the holidays. Last year I used brown craft paper, paint, lace doilies, and stencils to create personalized paper, but this year I wanted to go for something a little simpler. Once I saw this beautiful wrapping paper at Target, I knew I had to use it:) Here’s what you’ll need:

  • cardstock {I used silver, but choose any color you like!}
  • Diecut machine {or Silhouette, etc.} to cut letters
  • wrapping paper
  • tape or glue dots

Wrap your gifts first. Have your letters cut and ready to attach. Then, tape, use glue dots, or tie a ribbon around your gift and hole punch the corner of your letter and let is hang. I went the simple route and simple taped the letters on the center of my gifts and wrote on them. Much cuter than a gift tag, but still just as easy.


I may add bows or something else later, but I love the simplicty of these gifts. How do you like to embellish your gifts?

Have a very Merry Christmas!
