Still in search of simple and fast last minute Christmas gift wrapping ideas? I’ve teamed up with Hansemann.de to give you some major minimal gift wrapping inspiration. Below you find ideas and tips to create different black and white minimal gift wrapping designs with things you might already have at home.
My tips for beautiful and eyecatching minimal gift wraps:
-Stick to maximum 3 colors. In this case I used the classics: Black, white, and paper bag brown. Remember you want to look all your gifts as part of a whole, so cohesion is key.
-Choose a theme. My theme is Scandinavian style minimal gift wrapping in graphic black and white designs, but you could also choose for instance reindeer or snowmen.
-Use repetitive/recurring elements in every gift wrap. Each of your gifts must have an element that is present in the others so that they blend well together. I went for graphic patterns such as chevron, dotted, stitched, and striped motifs, minimal abstract trees, snowflakes, hearts, and stars.
-You can use washi tape to create tree designs on top of your gifts like I did above. Additionally, you can use it to replace ribbons in order to close your gift boxes.
-Create vintage paint effects with a special kind of paint and brush on top of your carton boxes.
-Use garn to stick stars, snowflakes, or any motif to the gift box instead of pasting it with glue.
-A star puncher is super handy to create confetti or motifs you can stick on top of your gifts
-Use feathers, abstract trees, leaves, and acorns as toppers or you can create your own design.
