Unique Kraft Paper Gift Wrap Inspiration for Every Season

Stop hoarding unused gift wrap and instead personalize gifts using today’s round-up of kraft paper gift wrap inspiration for every season.

You guys! I just did something a little crazy. I completely purged all of my gift wrap. As in every. last. roll.

The Big Gift Wrap Purge

I’m desperately trying to reorganize my craft room, which means major purging. And since my craft room happens to be where I store my gift wrapping supplies, something had to give.

So I threw out numerous rolls of faded and creased papers, dented rolls of wrapping, and crumpled tissue. All of those rolls of paper never seemed to get used (by me anyway).

Nine times out of 10, they ended up becoming imaginary pirate swords, explorers’ telescopes or baseball bats for my kids. I need to “Marie Kondo” that room, and none of my previously-loved gift wrap was bringing me any JOY (just my kids, obvi).

I love personalizing gifts with wrapping paper, but I usually buy each roll with a specific occasion in mind (i.e. pink rollerskating dinosaurs for a little girl’s birthday or snowboarding puppies for a dog lover). Ultimately, the rest of the roll would sit collecting dust until it became my son’s toy of choice for the day.

So Much Gift Wrap Inspiration on Pinterest

Even with all the personalized papers I buy, what I noticed is that the wrap I routinely use over and over again is my basic brown kraft paper. If you are following me on Pinterest – especially my Gift Wrap Inspiration board – you know I’m obsessed with using kraft paper as wrapping paper.

So I did something crazy.

I tossed all of my gift wrap aside from my beloved kraft paper.

And you can do it too!

Reclaim the corner of the closet or the under-the-bed bin where you store your gift wrap. You can take back all that space while STILL decorating gifts with your recipient in mind.

Don’t believe me? I’ve put together a quick round-up of my favorite personalized kraft paper gift wrap – some for every season! I hope it gives you some inspiration for how to use that roll of kraft paper!

If you missed it…

This isn’t my first time gushing about my love of kraft paper when it comes to wrapping gifts. I recently posted

1 | a DIY Seed Packet tutorial using kraft paper

2 | wrapped my son’s birthday gifts in kraft paper to make a giant volcano for his prehistoric themed birthday party, and

3 | ran kraft cardstock through my printer to make Hot Toddy recipe cards – the finishing touch for a housewarming gift basket.

Kraft paper is a porous paper with a light brown color that is strong and tear-resistant. Originally developed as a packaging and shipping material, kraft paper rolls and utility paper rolls have become a popular, economical choice for creating large drawings, murals, and displays with different art media.
