Different gifts demand different gift wrap, and here at Steven and Chris, we always aim for the extraordinary! Here are some creative wrappers for three common gift-giving occasions.
Snack-Time Birthday Wraps
This is just good, old-fashioned fun. Wrap each individual box in printed images of your favourite sandwich fixings for a gift that looks good enough to eat!
- Print your choice of sandwich fixings onto computer paper. Here are some of our favourites: bacon, bread, sesame bun, cheese, hamburger, lettuce and tomato. For bigger boxes, you may have to go to your local printer to get large-format sheets made.
- Wrap each box in a different ingredient.
- Stack wrapped gift boxes one on top of each other to create your made-to-order "sandwich"; secure with string. (Try not to take a bite on the way to the party!)
Crazy-Crayon Kids' Wrappers
These kid-friendly gift wrap ideas are perfect for the budding artiste: One comes complete with craft supplies, while the other is a work of art in itself!

colourful construction paper (Option 1)
hair dryer (Option 2)
- Glue crayons in a rainbow pattern around entire box.
- Place construction paper on top of box and secure it with a dot of hot glue.
- Use various crafting supplies to create a bow of sorts; keep it casual and loose.
- Alternatively, glue crayons, pointy-end down, side by side in a rainbow pattern around top of box. Heat crayons with hair dryer so that colourful wax drips down sides of box in a fantastic abstract pattern.
Formal Feminine Fabric Wrapping
This is a great alternative to paper gift wrap. Faux silk gives a simple gift box instant elegance!

- Cut a small X-shaped slit in top of gift box. (For larger boxes, cut a larger X.)
- Centre box on top of fabric.
- Bring fabric up around top of box and tuck it into slit.
- Cover top of box with decorative flowers or brooch.
