Simple Zebra Gift Wrap

Would you like a simple, easy-to-open, gift wrap idea? 


This box was still sturdy, but, well, OK, it looks kind of scruffy. 

Using two sheets of zebra duct tape and just a little red... 
Goodbye, Scruffy!  Hello, Snazzy!   


Sticking square duct tape on a square box is pretty simple.  I did not worry about the ends.

One corner of the box has a ding, AND the zebra wasn't quite big enough for the whole top.  It needs a little color anyway.  So, I added a zip of red!
Here's my gift!  It hopped right into the box with some red tissue paper and a couple of candy canes!  Hello, Snazzy!

Happy Wrapping!  ;-)  -Marci


  1. I love this post Marci! I would have never thought to dress up a box with duct tape! It looks so elegant...not to mention it matches that cup perfectly! Sweet!

  2. NOW I know what to do with my several rolls of fancy duct tape!!

  3. Excellent idea! Great way to re-purpose the box, and it looks awesome. I'm a new GFC follower, here from the blog train hop!

  4. My husband is a handyman. . .hmmmm, I have blue painter's tape and gray duct tape. I feel so "yesterday."

    1. Hello, Tami- Blue is so trendy with black right now... What if you used blue painter's tape with black electrical tape? I think it would be fun to alternate the two tapes and have fun stripes! Can I come over? I don't have either of those tapes! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  5. Love the idea! Using "old" boxes can be a great way of wrapping things if you have the right ideas! =)

  6. Wow...duct tape...who knew. Great idea to repurpose boxes that need a little help. Luv the picture of your pups. A new follower from the Meet and Greet Blog Hop. Hope you can stop by my blog as well.

  11. What a great transformation! That turned out great. I love all the cool designs that duct tape comes in now!

  12. I have never used the sheets of duct tape and wondered what they were for and this is the 2nd project you have done with them that made me think WOW that's it. So clever and it came out just amazing! Thanks for sharing on We Made That! (oh and you are also making me a huge fan of Zebra print!)

  13. Yup, that's snazzy. I like that word, too. Thanks, Linda

  14. Great Presentation…This Black and White is honestly a colorful innovation!!! The puppies, spider, flowers set a real world and something amazing which is great to every naked eye. Truly the ideas have given a better meaning related with so many worlds.
