DIY Hand Lettered Gift Wrap

May 16

Today’s DIY post comes to us from Aimee Strickland of madeinthefold, where she offers beautiful hand lettered wedding invitations and stationery. You can also check out her blog for more daily inspiration!

Supplies –

  • kraft gift box (found at your local craft store)
  • roll of kraft paper
  • twill tape (found in the fabric section of your craft store)
  • assorted tags or mini gift bags
  • pencil
  • eraser
  • white gel pen (i used a white gelly roll pen) or black fine point pen
  • text printed in font of choice (optional)

Step 1: Assemble your box. Depending on the box, this should require a simple amount of folding and tucking. Once you have your box top ready, write out your message (or trace it from your printed phrase) in pencil to determine spacing.

Step 2: Once you have your phrase scripted on top of the box, you can trace your pencil outline with the white gel pen, making the phrase as thick as desired.

Step 3: Fill box with a gift, candy, or goodies to give to your recipient!
