How to Adult: Gift Wrapper Edition

When it comes to wrapping gifts for the holidays, we’re big believers that what’s on the outside is almost as important as the inside. That said, this season, we’re all about getting creative with the way we’re wrapping our gifts.

Read on for creative (and affordable!) ways to wrap your favorite ShoeDazzle styles!


How gorgeous are these bold heels? @PaperArtCo created her own iteration of this trend with this chic duct-tape inspired style! Here’s how!


What you need:

Kraft Paper

Scotch Tape



What to do:

Step 1:

Wrap the package with kraft paper. Bonus tip: spray the WD-40 onto your scissor blades, so when you cut the tape, the adhesive won’t stick to it.

Step 2:

Depending on the size of your box, cut (2) pieces of duct tape and stick them to each other to create double sided strips. The length of two pieces should equal the longest side of the box. These will be the bow loops. Cut a third strip 6 inches long and make this double sided as well. This will be the center loop.

Step 3:

Take the 2 long strips and loop each one of them. Take an extra piece of tape and secure the ends, so the loops stay attached. Then cut an additional piece of tape and attach them to each other.

Step 4:

Take the roll of duct tape and create a t-bar pattern directly onto the wrapped box. Start on the back so the seams will not show on the front.


There’s nothing as glam as this glittering pair. Match your box to this high-shine shoe with this easy (and sparkling!) DIY.


What you’ll need:

Silver glitter

Kraft paper boxes

Foam brush


Blue gift tags

Gem-tac glue

What to do:

Step 1:

Pour your glitter into a large box.

Step 2:

Take one gift box and put a quarter size dot of glue in the middle.

Step 3:

Use a foam brush to spread it evenly. Work quickly as it dries fast.

Step 4:

Push the surface into the glitter to attach the glitter.

Step 5:

Repeat this process around the box, one side at a time.

Step 6:

Use twine to personalize the boxes to your liking.


This season, go gold or go home. There’s nothing more luxe than gold details. Create your own iteration of the trend with this quick and easy DIY.

Whatever you want! For this, get creative with anything and everything gold. Whether it’s a little twine, or a fun hand-drawn print with a gold glitter pen, the possibilities are endless. Have fun with it!
