Clever Father’s Day Gift Wrapping Ideas
Here are three fun, clever, but simple Father’s Day gift wrapping ideas to try out this year.
Easy Tie with Ribbon
Let’s start with a really simple twist to a regular ribbon bow. Instead of tying a ribbon into a bow, tie it like you would a dress shirt tie. wikiHow has 4 ways to tie a tie. Choose one of these simple ways to help you learn how to tie a tie using regular ribbon instead. Consider using plaid or stripped wrapping paper.
Here’s how ours turned out.
Recycled Gift Wrapping
Another idea is to use a clean recycled food box for your gift wrapping. You would never know that under this pretty Washi tape gift wrapping that this gift was wrapped in a CheezIt box!

First, we wrapped the framed family photo shoot gift that we made in brown paper. Other colors both plain and patterned will work. Consider using plaid or anything that may remind you of Dad’s button up dress shirt. You can also upcycle a brown paper bag.
Make the bow tie out of blue plaid scrap paper. First, cut out a rectangle, then cut out triangles on each side, and lastly wrap the middle with another piece of paper. The size you cut will depend on the size of your gift.
Next, use a small craft circle punch and cut out 3 circles to use as buttons. Again, play around with colors and patterns. If you do not have a craft punch, trace and cut out circles using a quarter or a bottle cap. This red piece left over from Christmas.
Lastly, use brown ribbon as suspenders and wrap a piece lengthwise around each side of the gift.
Tape it all together and you have a cute and simple paper dress shirt.
