Fruit wrapping paper

Turn your wrapping paper into fruit

Ever since I turned balloons into fruit a few years ago I’ve been loving the idea of turning everything into fruit. I’ve been spotting some fun projects from around the web too (like Mr. Printables printable fruits here and here. SO GOOD!) and since I’m on a wrapping paper kick (like the all sorts licorice here), I thought…why not fruit up some wrapping paper? Wouldn’t it be so fun to do for a birthday?! I’m digging it.

The fun thing about this one is that it’s all paper! Probably paper that you already have in your paper stash. I used a cutting machine to make the exact shapes, but I’m providing the templates in case you want to cut it out yourself.
