Use printable Minecraft paper to make this Minecraft themed gift wrap. It's the perfect way to wrap gifts for any Minecraft fan.
Have a Minecraft fan in your house? Me, too. And pretty much all of her little friends are, too.
So when it was time to go to a friend's birthday party this past weekend, I came up with a quick Minecraft themed birthday present wrapping idea. End even better yet? I used up some pixelated Minecraft-style paper I'd made for Niamh's Stampy Longnose/Minecraft birthday party.
Materials for Minecraft Gift Wrap:
- pixelated green (grass) and brown (dirt) scrapbook paper (free printable Minecraft-style scrapbook paper here)
- Tag punch (buy here)
- scissors or paper cutter (buy the one I use here)
- Minecraft Papercraft foldable Minecraft toys (buy here)
I first wrapped the gift in plain kraft wrapping paper, then cut two inch wide strips of my brown pixilated paper to use as ribbon. I just taped my "ribbon" in place.
I'd bought a kit of these foldable Minecraft Papercraft foldable cardstock Minecraft toys for Niamh's party in May, and still had a ton left over. (Side note: it truly just occurred to me that these boxes would make fabulous favor boxes. How did I not think of that before? Like in time for her party?)
I folded up a few of the paper Minecraft resources, and taped them to the top of the package instead of using a bow.
It was cute. And really really easy, and fast. But I wanted to see if I could make a traditional style gift bow, but with a Minecraft twist.
I cut a bunch of the green pixelated paper into 1" wide strips, and cut each strip into three equal pieces, then rolled each piece of paper into a cone shape and secured it with a bit of hot glue. I then glued the small, pixelated paper cones to a circle of the same paper.
And voila, pixelated Minecraft gift bow!
Yeah, that added just the right festive touch to the present.
