gift-wrapping time the greener way

|
By houseofanais · December 17, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

How I love these pretty creative eco-friendly gift wrappings. Admittedly some of them take quite a lot of time to complete, but the end results are so cute. I am hoping that I will have enough time and energy next year to do all presents this way, but this year it's just going to be wrappings for grown-up that will get a special treatment.

Of course i am hoping to stay inspired the whole year and practice my skills on every opportunity a gift needs to be given! Happy wrapping time everyone - make it enjoyable with a nice glass or wine, glogg and some Christmas treats!

The classic use-an-old newspaper one with self made tags. I think a good newspaper to use would be Wall Street Journal or similar as there are very few pictures there...

Brown paper and multiple ribbons create a colourful and sophisiticated end result here (latter depending on the ribbon colours of course)

This idea is cute, but should not be finished too early or the pretty green bits will start wilting
