Here are a few suggestions:
Twine is a classic to put with brown paper, probably because it looks so good. It’s a gender –neutral combination that’s classy and simple.
For a more colourful option, you could wrap some pretty ribbon around your gift. Fabric ribbon simply tied or plastic ribbon split and curled with the blade of a pair of scissors.
Another fun option is to cut out some shapes (I used a shape puncher) and glue them on.
Covering the paper in doodles or a pattern is like making your own unique wrapping paper and can be a lot of fun to do.
Lastly, for something super cute with a sweet message, try dressing it like a parcel but address it to ‘the best Mum ever’ or ‘Coolest Dad on the planet’ to give a subtle message about the person you’re gifting it to.
Brown paper really is super versatile; they are so many options, way more than I’ve collected here.
What about you, do you like using brown paper? How do you decorate it?
