Christmas is almost upon us again, so I thought I’d share an idea for wrapping presents. It looks great, is really easy, and best of all it’s cheap!

Here are some examples that I’ve done in the past.
ManMade DIY has full instructions on how to do the cut-outs. Here’s one they did out of a book!

Little did I know it would be so hard to find brown kraft paper (a few weeks ago it was in plentiful supply!)
Presents all wrapped and waiting...
