This is one of my favorite ways to wrap a present these days. It's easy and cheap and beautiful, three words that are music to my ears!
Take a piece of kraft wrapping paper ($1.00 a roll at Dollar Tree) and use markers of any color (including gold or silver ink ones) to write the message of your choice. This was wrapping paper for a birthday present, so I did a no-brainer message:
The kind of marker I used dries instantly, so the paper is immediately ready for wrapping.
This actually works better if you write the words such that they are staggered on the paper and the lines of words overlap on the package, but this morning I was going for quick and easy. It's still fun and personal, because you took the time to make it. You could even add the name of the recipient to make it ultimately personalized.
Have fun with this simple technique!
