This is the second to last tutorial in the Wrap it Up series, but it’s an extra good one and includes sparkle and kraft paper! Enjoy! Oh and did you see yesterday’s tutorial about wrapping with worn out stockings?!
Hi C.R.A.F.T friends!! I’m Sarah from Sarah M. Dorsey Designs and I’m so excited and honored that Jamie asked me to participate in her Wrap It Up series! Today I’m sharing a few wrapping ideas using kraft paper, adhesive and glitter. Let’s face it, glitter is messy, but to me, it wouldn’t be Christmas without it! I love the shine and depth that it adds – So worth a little extra vacuuming!
It’s super simple… Here’s how I did it!
First, I cut a piece of brown kraft paper and laid pieces of painters tape at a 45 degree angle. To space it, I placed two small pieces of tape as I went to make sure it was even.
I sprayed a light coat of spray adhesive, sprinkled glitter and then removed the tape.
For the polka dots, I used round glue dots and then sprinkled on glitter. I wasn’t too picky with the spacing, so it was little random – life’s too short to measure here. Thanks for the inspiration Brittany!
I picked up some pom pom yarn from Ollie’s – it makes the perfect ribbon!
Isn’t everything is better with gold and glitter?! To see more of our DIY christmas tree, click here. Thanks so much for having me Jamie. This was fun!

I love the use of glitter with Kraft card and paper. I have produced a similar effect using glitter Washi tape on Kraft paper and this has produced some lovely wrapping paper. I wish all Christmas presents were wrapped like this!

Why not use double sided tape instead of spray adhesive?

Super cute idea… Pinning!
Wow, you put some thought and effort into this! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a fancier brown paper wrapper! I think I would have to cheat and wrap and just put one star on the top, haha! Thanks so much for sharing this on Throwback Thursday and have a great Holiday Season!

Yes! Everything is definitely better with glitter! I love it!
I wish I was better at wrapping presents. I usually opt for gift bags. But I suppose I could do the same thing on the bags 🙂
This is perfect for Christmas! If you have time, I would love for you to share this post over at the
Holidays Celebration link party that is live right now! It’s such a neat idea, I’m sure our readers would love it too! (http://keepingitrreal.blogspot.com.es/2015/11/holidays-celebration-link-party-1-is.html)
