** Tips for wrapping gifts sustainably **

  • use newspapers, comic books, telephone books, maps and even leaves to wrap up your gift!
  • use tissues, on the Japanese style furoshiki. A step-by-step following the Youtube at the end of the post!
  • use packaging: cans, glasses, cardboard boxes and bags can be painted and capped as you want!
  • ask the children to draw on the back of brown paper or scratch paper, it turns into a lovely and original wrapping paper!
  • put all your love on it:  ribbons, sisal and labels  add a charming touch to finish your art! Reuse ribbons ironing them, they look like new!

Happy Holidays!
