Gift-Wrap Tutorials

Wrapped presents exude an air of mystery, beauty, and anticipation, don’t they? There’s just something exciting about not knowing what’s hidden within the pretty wrapping, even if the gift is shaped like a bowling ball, feels like a bowling ball, and rolls around heavily like a bowling ball—part of the gift is the act of unwrapping it—you won’t know for sure until it’s uncovered.

On the flipside of that coin, there’s something so satisfying and delightful about being the wrapper, the gift-giver who pretties up the gift.

From burlap bows to woven yarn to paper stars, we’re big fans of creatively wrapped gifts, and this roundup of gift-wrap tutorials is a charming collection of inspiration.

Thanks to the creative folks mentioned below who so artfully share and illustrate their techniques!
