    Use stencils or stamps to decorate your paper. I made my stencils out of an old card I had laying around- you could also make your own stamps using a potato- I thought this might be the safest way to go for me though. It was less likely I'd cut myself making a stencil.

    Fold your paper in half and sew up two of the open sides of your paper. Make sure to leave one side open for you to place your gift in. I used a long zig-zag stitch and red thread for my packages.
