Butcher Paper Gift Wrap

I know we just passed Mother’s Day and there really is no gift-giving holiday in the very near future, but I thought these wrapping ideas all using butcher paper were post-worthy.


Just brown paper or boxes and yarn. Gorgeous and amazing. Found on Oh Happy Day; from More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts via Melanie Falick Books


Love confetti; hate the mess. But if I got a gift wrapped like this, I’m not sure I’d even open it. From Tokketok.


Use a date stamp to make a graphic pattern on solid paper. I love the thought of stamping someone’s birthday all over their package. Visit Paper, Plate, and Plane for more photos and instructions. (Colored ink might give it more pizzazz. Just sayin’.)
