Gift Wrapping Secret Number Three: Use Fabric
Fabric works the same. Have a ton of holiday fabric lying around? Then get it out and get to using it on those boxes for an extra fancy look.

Brown paper sacks from the grocery can really look adorable when wrapping. Use them with a diy rolling stamp or regular stamps to create your own paper. Tie off with a little baking twine for extra oomph!
Gift Wrapping Secret Number Five: Wrap Gifts in the Right Place.
Wrap on a large, hard, flat surface to keep your paper from wrinkling. Your squishy bed is not the handiest place to wrap gifts neatly. You can also store the paper in a garment bag in order to keep it from getting all those crinkles.
