Now, I am no expert... I actually have a hard time wrapping anything that isn't square, so when it came to these oval gifts for my sister-in-law's baby shower, I did my best to "wrap pretty". To disguise my mediocre wrap job, I decided to add some decorations to my package.
 First, I gathered my normal wrapping supplies and wrapped my gift.
I also got some paint swatches, twine, double sided tape, craft glue and a circle punch.
 I started by wrapping my gift in twine - I chose to do a zigzag pattern.
Each time I went around I put a small piece of tape on the back to hold it in place.
 Next, using my circle punch, I punched circles out of my paint swatch.
Using a second swatch (the same colors) I cut a few bigger circles out with scissors.
 Then, I simply glued my circles onto my package!
(I found glue to be easier than tape)
MUCH cuter than when I started...
and most of the imperfections are now hidden.
Also, I added a small tag (since the color was called "baby boy blue" - how perfect!)
This little spruce up cost me nothing but I think it adds so much to the look of the gift.
Here are some more cute, inexpensive gift wrapping ideas:
Happy wrapping :)
