Why buy wrapping paper which is costly not only to our wallets, but also our planet? Why submit yourself to the long lines at the drugstore? Raid your office supplies instead and you will have gorgeously wrapped presents decorated with reused and repurposed items. Best of all: they look amazing.
brown paper grocery bags
label dots (ideally in 3/4 inch and 1 inch sizes)
1. Cut the paper bags and turn them inside out, so you have a clean brown surface with which to work. Use white out pen (or silver sharpie if that’s what you have) to draw snowflakes.
2. Wrap presents. Tie with string. Place label dots in alternating sizes on the bottom of the string, facing up. Carefully place a corresponding dot on top of the face-up dots, so you have dot stickers sandwiching the string.
3. Write a To: ___ dot. Write a From ___ dot. Sandwich these dots on the ends of the bows for a perfect, easy label. (not pictured, sorry).
Merry Christmas! Merry planet!
