I have always loved the time of gift wrapping for Christmas though it taken a lot of patient and effort. I have used brown paper with personalized stamp prints previously and this year I will just up-cycled old magazine, paper scraps, broken artificial flowers and fresh pine leaves plugged from my neighborhood.
I love the quality of this weekly business magazine. I have kept this copy since few months ago for this purpose.
Using recycled items save money, save the landfill and create amazing and unique gift wrap. I have my little calligrapher to do the tags and wrapped some of the gifts. The washi tapes and red jute twine were the only fresh materials.
The gift tags are made with original scraps (without cutting) from making paper flag lines few years back.
After ran out of artificial flowers, I used the beautiful pine leaves plugged from nearby.
Recycle and up-cycle are not merely a trend; it is our responsible to reduce waste to make this a better place for our future generation. I can't live with zero waste but I try to cut the waste produce in the way I can.
Merry Christmas to you and may you love God and His creation.
