Got a gift to give and no wrapping paper? No problem! We’re showing you how to make your own with wax paper and a pen.



  • Wax paper
  • Scissors
  • Felt-tip pen(s)
  • Tape


Step 1: Measure the wax paper needed to wrap your gift. No wax paper? Try the backside of paper grocery bags instead.

Step 2: Use a felt-tip pen to add a design — repeating designs look especially good. You can even draw on your own ribbon and bow! Tip: If you want to draw on ribbon, wrap your gift first so you can center your design. 

Step 3: Wrap the gift, touch up your design and show off your artwork.
