Brown Wrapping Paper Roll
Maybe you think plain brown wrapping paper is boring. But maybe you're also buried under a wrapping paper roll avalanche every time you open the door to your craft closet. Because you need all 50 rolls, right? You bought the one with the dancing candles for birthdays, the pink baby bonnet one for baby showers, the silver wrap for anniversaries ... Except we're here to tell you that you don't need all 50. Actually, you don't need any of them. With plain brown paper and a few creative hacks you can make fabulous custom gift wraps for every occasion.
1. Tie it up
Tie ribbon, raffia, twine, yarn, leftover holiday garlands or any else that inspires you around a gift wrapped in brown paper, or a plain brown box. If you really want to fancy it up, do what the pros do and layer. For example, use both raffia and twine. The more creative you are about what you tie around your gift, the more impressed they’ll be.
Upcycle leftover party favors by taping them to the top of your gifts. Make it even more festive by attaching them with decorative tapes.
If you’ve got confetti or glitter handy, swipe glue across the paper and sprinkle some on top. Brush off the excess and voila: a fast and fun alternative to the usual ribbon.
4. Write it out
If all else fails grab a sharpie and pen a quick sentiment, or create a custom birthday drawing or pattern.
Using A Roll Of Brown Paper To Wrap Boxes For Shipping? | Yahoo Answers
It depends on the carrier. For instance, I know UPS will not ship packages that have been wrapped, it must be a clean box with no additional barcodes or other potentially confusing information. The USPS once allowed wrapped packages, but their regulations have changed frequently over the last few years.
So, my suggestion would be that you check with whatever carrier you intend to use before attempting to mail a wrapped package to avoid delays and/or additional work and trips to the carrier on your part.
