Sparkly DIY Gift Wrap

DIY gift wrap from the Sweetest Occasion

Earlier this week I shared my DIY duct tape ribbon gift wrap tutorial and today I have a couple more little DIY gift wrap ideas to share with you. These are so simple, using bits of sparkly ribbon paired with kraft paper gift boxes that I picked up at my local Michaels. I love the contrast of glitter against kraft, mixing a touch of glam with good old fashioned brown paper packages. I kind of adore how these turned out and I hope you do, too!

For this glittery champagne colored package, I simply wrapped a length of shimmer tulle around the box and adhered it to the backside, first trimming the width to be about 3/4 that of the box itself. Then taking a champagne curling ribbon found alongside the gift wrap supplies in Michaels, I cut 8 pieces and did a classic basket weave across the top of the box. I purposefully positioned it a bit off center to give it a bit of interest, but you could mix this look up however you’d like. It’s super easy to do!

For this sparkly black bow, I used a glitter ribbon (available in scores of colors) and the same technique employed for the duct tape ribbon bows. I have to tell you, I’m a total sucker for this combination of black glitter on kraft. The contrast is really fun, but also totally chic!

These are gorgeous, Cyd! Such pretty inspiration!



Does the tulle fray when you cut it?


Hi Cyd! Random question – what type of font is the websites title? I loveeee it!


Hi, Amy! I didn’t have any issues with the tulle fraying, but you’ll want to use really sharp scissors to help with that.

Billie, the logo is actually not a font, it’s hand calligraphy by Nicole Black. You can find her here – She’s awesome! So glad you like it! ;-)

i love this! will definitely try this!

Where did you find the sparkly ribbon?


Hey Bethany! The ribbon is from Michaels. :-)


Thanks so much, Francesca! Have fun! :-)

Okay…this is just TOO cute. I love how it’s glam, yet simple. :)


Thanks, Krista! I had so much fun with these :-)


Dying over there. I always use kraft as my base and am always looking for a creative new ribbon treatment. This is perfect!
