DIY kraft paper gift wrap Three years ago I bought a massive roll of kraft paper for wrapping gifts, and so far I’ve only used about half of it. It’s the cheapest, best wrapping paper EVER! It’s recyclable, it matches everything, and you can use it plain or customize it for the occasion with paint markers (white and silver Sharpie paint markers are my favorites). Stars for Christmas, hearts for Valentine’s Day, balloons for birthdays… Really anything looks great drawn on kraft paper!
The tube beads to the left were made with Kraft paper I cut from my roll of Kraft paper, then I printed it on my computer. Cut the strips and rolled them up. See it can be done! You can also print a whole sheet of a pattern and cut it into little pieces and wrap them around a core bead of the same paper. You can also use different colored paper as your core if you wanted to.
