Wrapping | the most versatile wrapping paper

If I could only ever have one wrapping paper it would be, without a doubt, brown paper. Brown paper both looks good and is super versatile. With a little dressing up, a roll of brown paper will have all your wrapping needs covered.
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?
