How to Make DIY Emoji Wrapping Paper

Christmas is slowly approaching…or not. I know it can get a little scary around this time. Between expensive gifts, traffic trying to get to and from the mall, and most importantly trying to figure out the best present to get for your family and friends. So the last thing you really want to think of is how you’re going to present your gift to your loved ones. I like to buy ALL my presents and then start my wrapping process. I clear the house, even put up signs leading to my workspace. I put on some Christmas music, choose my wrapping paper, and begin!! But choosing the wrapping can be difficult. You don’t want to me lame and use the same wrapping paper for everyone, but you don’t want to use a bajillion different types of wrapping paper and make a huge mess. You want to personalize your wrapping paper and make each gift special for each person. Say hellllooo to DIY Emoji Wrapping Paper!! You will literally fall in love with these like I did! Emojis are so popular, my grandmother even uses them (although she is a cool techy grandma).  Just follow these trouble-free steps and this craft will make you the hit of the family…even if your presents aren’t that great.

Step 2:

Print out our lovely templates on your paper or cardstock of choice and cut out the pieces you need.  I used White Vellum Bristol, Baby Pink, Ultra Fuchsia Brite Hue, and Baby Blue.  Remember you can mix and match!

Step 3:

Now just glue or tape to your yellow wrapped gift. I only used glue to put the pupils on the eyeballs. Other than that I used tape.

So I thought to myself, “how can I make this festive?”. After all it’s yellow wrapping paper and emojis. Santa Hats!! What’s more festive then Santa during the Christmas season?!

Step 1:

Again download and print out our Santa hat template. I printed them on Red Brite Hue paper and Strathmore Bright White paper. Of course you can be creative and do your own thing! Cut out the full hat in red and in white, just cut out the fluff of the hat.

  1. This is a great idea! Thanks so much for offering. I’m putting together a golf gift package for my co-worker and giving him a can full of emoji golf balls . I have one small box that goes with the gift and will use your ideas to create a fun wrap! Well done! Thank you.
