Gift Wrap Inspiration

I recently found myself in a hurry to wrap a gift - we were invited to a birthday party and I had been sick all week.  I grabbed my trusty brown kraft paper (I love it because it can be recycled afterwards, and it's SO versatile - like a blank canvas)

Then I grabbed my japanese washi tape and created the number 4 (the age of the birthday boy) - you could create any number you wanted - or a stencil & paint would also generate the same fun effect!

I created a little matching tag and tied with plain string.  There you have it, a simple a creative way to wrap in under 5 minutes.

Do you have any gift wrap go-to ideas?  Feel free to share with us in the comments below.
