3. The Plaid Box
All you need for this wrapping idea is blue painter's tape, acrylic paint, and a paintbrush. First, use tape to create a plaid or striped design on the box and paint on your first color. Once that's dry, peel off and retape as needed for the second color (you might have to tape over the first color in the case of a plaid design). Repeat these steps as needed. If you don't have time to wait for multiple colors to dry, use only one color for a stripe or cut out circles from the painter's tape to make a polka-dot design.
