TOP 10 materials for gift wrapping

Gift wrapping

Hello everybody! Nastya Skoreeva is with you again! Today I will touch on such a non-trivial topic as gift wrapping materials. I will tell you about the features of the best packaging accessories.

Not everyone bothers with gift wrapping , but even if you belong to this category of people, sometimes there are cases when there is no way to get away from packing) Say, the anniversary of the boss or a long-awaited date with your beloved.

No, of course, and here you can do without it. But the gift will no longer be so bright and may not produce the enchanting effect that was expected.

In general, I’m all about the fact that wrapping presents with different beauties is a very profitable strategy when handing them over. Especially if the gift is not the most luxurious :)


I will tell you today about which materials in my opinion are the most promising and how to handle them better.

Packaging materials: TOP 10

I warn you right away, some of the packaging materials require some creative approach. Although it seems to me that you can handle it quite well, because the manipulations will have to be quite simple.

I distributed the places conditionally, according to the approximate complexity of working with the material. Again, it all depends on what kind of gift the packaging is used for.

10. Tissue paper

In 10th place was tissue paper because of its fragility. However, it can be of different types, so this statement is not always true.

It makes beautiful flowers. It is also used to fill the box for the safety of the contents (for this, the paper is slightly crumpled and the bottom is laid).

To pack a gift in it, you can put a present in the center of a square of paper and carefully fold all the edges to the center. This creates a kind of envelope. To prevent the envelope from disintegrating, seal the edges with tape or tie with tape.

9. Sisal

A very beautiful eco-material used mainly by florists.

The fact is that the so-called sisal cloth has large enough holes in its structure, so it should be used for packaging only if your gift occupies a solid part of the space))

To the touch, the canvas is quite rigid, but flexible, sometimes it has a pleasant aroma.


8. Decorative mesh

Also an attribute of florists. But it is most often possible to put a small present in it, since the holes in the grid are much smaller.


7. Corrugated paper

This thing is very diverse. There are a large number of types of such material, but for wrapping it is most convenient to use the one that is sold in flower shops, since it is thinner and therefore more flexible.

The peculiarity of corrugated paper is its non-smoothness. Due to its numerous grooves and veins, this material can be stretched in some places, thereby obtaining interesting effects.

For example, you probably saw beautiful wavy edges in bouquets, which are just obtained thanks to this paper. It also makes beautiful flowers)

6. Transparent film (can be patterned)

I think everyone is familiar with her. It is sold in many places: bookstores, flower shops, creative shops.

One of the most budget materials, but quite slippery, it can be difficult to work with it from the habit.


5. Gift paper

It also has a low cost and easy accessibility. The main disadvantage is some “shabbiness” of the option, since almost everyone uses it.

But this effect is easy to overcome: it is enough just to find an unusual, perhaps even moderately avant-garde, version of this material (say, hand-painted or with the effect of the night sky, space).

4. Tapes

Yes, just like that, without any complementary elements. Take a ribbon (satin, organza, paper, in the end) and tie the gift.

The trick is that the gift can be tied so that it will simply not be visible from under the ribbons! And if you also come up with your own pattern, then it will be just a bomb)

Just do not take too narrow ribbons, it will be difficult with them.

3. Burlap (or two-piece)

Excellent, inexpensive, affordable materials. The only disadvantage, perhaps, is the flowability. So the edges should be treated with glue, hemmed, or figure out how to beat the “shagginess”.

From these fabrics, you can sew bags or just wrap a gift in a flap.


2. Organza

There is also quite a loose fabric. But unlike the previous two, it is more elegant, I would even say, with a touch of elitism.

Cool bags are sewn from it, but you can just wrap a present with it.


1. Felt

I’ll make a reservation right away, I mean a soft, easily bending felt made of wool, and not a synthetic likeness of thick cardboard.

What are its advantages? Absolutely no loose edges, it is easy to work even for beginners, pleasant to the touch.

For packaging, by the way, you can use the so-called floral felt: it is thinner and softer than usual.


This concludes my narrative about gift materials. I hope you have found the one that suits you the most ;)

By the way, maybe I forgot something? Be sure to tell us about it in the comments. Goodbye!
