Newspaper gift wrapping gives off an old school and vintage vibe.

You can finish off the entire look with a colourful ribbon to complement the black and white newspaper.
Cloth Gift Wrap
This type or kind of gift wrapping was first famous in Japan. This method of gift wrapping is called furoshiki. It is a method where a cloth is used to cover items to be given to someone.

After they dry, you can start cutting and wrapping your gifts with these shiny foil bags! This way, you get a wrapper that is sparkly and adds a shiny touch to any gift you are about to give. Also, don’t forget the ribbons!
When we say do-it-yourself wrappers, we mean, get blank coloured papers, some drawing materials, and start crafting! You can put any design you want, draw anything your heart desires and let your creativity take over the work. Plus, it also gives out a more personal feeling when you design the wrapper yourself. Even though it takes time, it is definitely worth it.
