12 Days Of Wrapping: ABCDEFG


Our wrapping move today is a super simple one that adds a playful element of personalization to all of your holiday gifts. Forget fancy wrapping, just look to the alphabet! We found three types of letters that make personalized gift wrap a cinch, making it so your gift tags double as wrapping. Bonus points if you can throw in Twitter handles instead of names!

– poster letter pads
– alphabet foam stickers
– create your own banner kit
– colored paper
– sharpie
– glue stick

Instructions for this are ridiculously easy! The foam letters we have are adhesive so you simply pull off the backing, stick on, and you’re done. We added a strip of colored paper underneath so that the recipient can easily remove it and keep their name still in tact – in case they want to save it for their desk or bulletin board. We used sharpie to draw an “@” sign on a contrasting piece of paper, cut it out and glued it on.

The poster letter pads we used are pretty awesome. They’re like post-its and each letter peels off to reveal other colors of the same letter. Add a glue stick to the mix, stick onto your gift box, and there you go!

For our last alphabetical wrapping job, we simply strung a single letter from a create your own banner kit. This, of course, only works if you have a small family with all different first initials. For larger gifts, you can spell out full names and the recipient can keep it as a keepsake for their door or over their desk.
