DIY word search gift wrap

Hello to everyone. Hope you have all had a lovely Easter (that’s if you celebrate it of course!).

I saw this wrapping paper a while back and thought it was pretty cool.

There are loads of ‘wordsearch generators’ available online so it’s really easy to make your own personalised word search gift wrap. You don’t even need much in the way of supplies…just some white paper and some highlighter pens (or you can use highlighter strips).

I created my word search using My grid contained 20 columns and 24 rows. This fills an A4 sheet. Make sure you only print the first page out though…the second page just contains the words you have added.

I also put each word into the wordsearch generator about 6 times (as some words appear backwards or aren’t in the right place after wrapping the present).

Instead of wrap you could make some wide gift ribbon to wrap around a present. You could also make some nice cards, envelopes or small gift-bags!

After a quick google I found another DIY word search gift wrap tutorial here so you may wanna check that out for more tips.

  3. Ha! Clever! At the moment it doesn’t feel like it… present I’m revising for a maths test (to secure a place on a college course) and my brain is very rusty!! Making things look pretty I can do. Maths is another story 🙁

  7. Cool idea. What a great way to personalise a gift.

    Btw you may also want to try the free wordsearch maker at It lets you control the direction of words, grid size, and grid shape, so might speed up the process or open up some other creative angles for you.
