Have you given up buying commercial gift wrapping paper yet? It's non-recyclable, and really unnecessary given the stunning DIY options available. I've given up purchasing gift wrap in favour of using natural and repurposed materials, which I think creates a personal touch that adds to the gift itself.
This year, I tried out birch bark wrapped over kraft paper, tied up with string and adorned with a sprig of greenery.
Here are some other awesome ideas from repurposed paper bags, tissue paper, newsprint, material, parchment paper...even old sweaters. Get creative this season. Our landfills will thank you!
