Embellished Kraft Wrappings
Sometimes the impact of using simple, inexpensive materials for gift wrapping can make just as big of an impact as using more expensive materials. These projects in the Embellished Kraft Wrappings collection each use a base made from kraft paper in some form. This is a great way to recycle and reuse things around your home and regift them in a fun and creative way!
You can find this project, as well as many others, in our free downloadable eBook, Fuse Creativity System Project Guide: Fun Party Themes, Ideas for Handmade Cards, and More Paper Crafts from Fiskars!

Using a paper bag and a few Fiskars Fuse Design Sets, you can have a sweetly wrapped gift in around 10 minutes. Begin by using a Fiskars border punch along the top edge of a paper lunch sack.
Next, use the Fiskars Fuse Creativity System(R) with the Bird Design Set to create a die cut. I cut mine from an old wool sweater.
To create a bird's nest, die cut a scalloped circle and fold it in half. Fold the top of the bag over to the desired length and sew the nest to the flap. Tack the flap down with adhesive, and slip the bird die cut into the nest. Die cut and letterpress a gift tag using the Keeping Tabs Mini Design Set.
A kraft box can be turned into a beautifully wrapped gift with a little glitter and a pretty satin bow. To create the gift tag, die cut a piece of chipboard using the Mirror Design Set. Brush a liquid adhesive onto the surface and coat it with glitter.
When dry, attach the sparkly die cut to the box, along with a variety of other trims, such as burlap, sequin trim, a satin bow, and paper flowers.
The last gift wrapping is the most inexpensive and is great for a pretty presentation of party favors. Simply die cut two shapes (using the Scalloped Square Design Set here) from kraft wrapping paper, letterpressing one of them. Machine stitch the two pieces together, leaving a small opening.
Insert small party favors into this opening, taking care not to overfill the packet. Stitch the opening closed. Attach a length of pretty crochet trim to the packet and top it with a punched shape, a burlap flower, and a small wooden bird.
