Learn how to make your own easy DIY wrapping paper for Christmas with either a simple marker or custom stamps for a fun, modern look! You’re going to love these Christmas gift wrap ideas.
Well, here’s the true story. When we were moving last winter all of my Christmas wrapping paper got damaged. Every last bit of it. So instead of going out and buying new everything, I snagged one roll of kraft paper and decided to try to jazz it up a bit DIY style.
I had seen so many good ideas on Pinterest, but this inspirational wrapping paper from Walk In Love really inspired my DIY wrapping paper. Didn’t it turn out so cute?
With my inspiration in mind, I decided to enlist the help of my handy little Silhouette Mint as well! If you’ve never heard of the Mint, this thing is so fun to use! You can create custom stamps that don’t even need a stamp pad for! You just squeeze the ink onto the custom stamps and it’s good for up to 50 stamps before adding more.

Supplies for DIY wrapping paper:
- Silhouette Mint – read this post for info on how to make custom stamps using the Mint
- Kraft Paper
Measure and cut kraft paper.
First you want to cut your piece of kraft paper down to size that is appropriate for the gift you’re wrapping.
Decorate your DIY wrapping paper.
For some of the paper, I stamped it with custom stamps of a tree and snowman that I made with my Silhouette Mint. It was SO easy to make these stamps and you even have to worry about a stamp pad because they are self inking and good for up to 50 stamps before you need to add more ink!
For other pieces of DIY wrapping paper, I just used a simple Sharpie! I remembered how much I loved when I wrote nursery rhymes all over this package for my sister baby shower when I made this baby shower gift wrap.
Wrap up your present.
To finish things up, you just simply wrap your present!
Making your own DIY wrapping paper is so simple! This stuff is so unique and memorable.
I love that it can be customized to whatever decor suits your Christmas decor style. It’s so easy, you can even have the little ones help.
