We love sharing new ideas for unique gift wrapping, and this is something that was too cute not to try. Adorable animal gift wrap! We’ve seen this idea on Pinterest, so our illustrator Krista decided to put her own spin on it. This is a great way to dress up your packages for Christmas, birthdays or other special gift giving. And it is especially fun for kids! If you have a bit of extra time for gift wrapping, we definitely recommend putting in the effort to create these cuties.
This project is very simple and it’s also something that you can get the kids in on with you. Download the PDF templates below and print onto regular copy paper. You can also use cardstock for a stiffer paper, or full sheet label paper if you would like to stick the facial details directly on to the packages. If you want to save a bit of ink for your printer, we also added a blank outline version that kids can color in themselves. Or, you can use the template to cut the shapes onto construction paper. There are lots of options for making your animal gift wrap!
After printing and trimming the template pieces, we arranged them onto the boxes and attached them using glue dots. Mix and match to create your own animal gift wrap characters! You can make horizontal characters or vertical characters depending on the look you’re going for. Finish them off with some cute paper bows and they are ready for gifting!
