Wrapping paper is a huge part of the holidays. But instead of grabbing some store-bought, typical Christmas paper, why not DIY your own? They’re simple, creative and will make the present for that special someone feel extra-special.

We bought a roll of craft paper from Dollarama and used it as the base for all 3 wrapping paper styles. Be sure to wrap your present first and then decorate it for better results!

#1: RAPPING PAPER (Punny or what?)

Materials:

Craft Paper
Printout of Rappers
Santa Hats/Accessories
Glue Gun
Sharpie

Step 1
Find photos of your favourite rappers, and size their heads to be the same on a Word Document

Step 2


Print & cut out the rapper heads. We found these cute felt santa hats at Dollarama that we added to make them look a little more holiday friendly. (Alternatively, you could draw on Santa hats on with a sharpie when you’re done glueing the heads onto the wrapping paper

Step 3
Glue the rapper heads onto the paper in no particular order. Take your sharpie and draw on their bodies (and hats if need be).

Wrap the present with twine in a cross-shape a few times

Step 2

Take your pinecones and greenery and glue them down above the centre of the present where the twine meets, angling them to the right or left.

Step 3
Use extra craft paper to make a name tag, and secure it to the present with extra string/twine.
