Raid your office supplies to make the most gorgeous eco-friendly wrapping paper! Your gifts will look amazing, and even better than that, they will help save the environment because you are just repurposing items you already have. These gifts are so charming with their Brown Paper Packages Tied Up with String theme. This idea is simple, rustic and really ties into a natural Christmas design scheme.
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? You can make your own!
Eco-Friendly Wrapping Paper Idea Using Office Supplies
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 a 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!
