Looking for a cute and quirky gift wrapping idea? Hi! It’s Leslie from Pink Stripey Socks and I’m seriously IN LOVE with today’s craft. Our friend recently held a birthday-themed party for her daughter. I was so inspired by the theme that I incorporated butterflies into my gift wrapping too. Voila! Butterfly cutout DIY wrapping paper!
To wrap your gift this way, you’ll need these materials:
- Tissue Paper
- Wrapping Paper
- Craft Knife
- Cutting Mat
- Sharpie Marker
Let’s make butterfly cutout wrapping paper!
Step 1: Wrap your gift in colorful tissue paper. (I taped on additional strips of orange tissue paper so that my butterfly wings would look more colorful!)
Step 2: Cut out a sheet of wrapping paper to wrap your gift.
Step 3: Using a craft knife, cut out your butterfly wings. (Remember, you’re only cutting out one wing. You’ll fold back the wing to create a pair of wings.) Vary the size of your butterfly wings to make a more interesting design. Once you’re finished cutting out your wings, slightly fold them back to make sure that you cut cleanly though the wrapping paper.
Step 4: Wrap your gift. Then, fold back your butterfly wings to reveal your beautiful fluttering butterflies! Use a Sharpie marker to add antenna.
