Layering Wrapping Paper

By on May 30, 2011

You can create a really beautiful effect by layering your wrapping papers. I like to use a plain base layer and a decorative overlay.


A simple and versatile unique gift wrapping idea is to use brown paper as the base layer. It is inexpensive and readily available. You can then add a strip of pretty patterned paper and a ribbon, or layer different types of paper over the brown paper.

Cut a strip of patterned paper and secured it on the underside of your present with double sided tape.

You can now tie a matching ribbon around the center of your gift, or add another layer of patterned paper.
You can offset your patterned paper to one side to get a different look.
