With all of the excess paper and packaging we have in our recycling bins there’s absolutely zero reason to purchase gift wrap + presenting your gifts in fun, unique (& reusable) packages makes them even more special!
Here’s a few groovy ideas to get you started:
Grab few empty packages from your recycling bin.
Carefully deconstruct a box.
And then reconstruct it inside out.
Decorate, pop a gift inside and tie with a pretty scrap of ribbon!
Snag a paper (or foil) bag package – Scrunch up the bottom – Carefully push the bottom up through the top – Flip the bag inside out
Decorate and pop a gift inside!
(If you’re a stickler for smoothness you can easily de-wrinkle the paper bag by laying it on flat surface, covering it with a tea towel and ironing the whole shebang on a medium heat.)
Any type of packaging that can be easily turned inside out can be used, yay!
Don’t want to bother reconstructing your gift wrap?
