As a child, one of my favorite aunts always used newspaper print to wrap my birthday presents, adorned with her signature magic marker calligraphy. I thought it was fun, quirky, and definitely unique to my aunt.
As I grew up, my brothers assured me it was because she was “cheap,” but I didn’t see it that way. I thought it was special and her creativity carved a spot in my heart.
Beautifully wrapped presents are a love language all their own. I wish it was something I took more time to do, but often, I am grabbing for any gift bag stuffed in a closet. I have high hopes of finally mastering the big, fabric gift bows that I always admire, but I realize that most often beautiful presents can be created by simply using what you have on hand. We don’t need to spend a lot of extra money on supplies and they don’t have to take a lot of time to make a huge impact. These cute DIY summer gift wrapping ideas are a perfect example of shopping the house. I just love this adorable Watermelon gift wrap.
Isn’t it perfect for a summer party or shower? You can even use a roll of paper to create a coordinating table runner.
This adorable ice cream topper would be perfect for so many things and what I love about the striped red and white paper is you can create that in minutes with things that you already have in your drawers.
