On friday,I stumbled upon a blog Girl About Home and as I was browsing through her posts I found eco friendly gift wrap ideas, she has so many beautiful ideas, love it.
Coincidentally We had to attend a birthday party on Saturday and we were out of gift warping paper. In our home gift warping dept is hubby's. If I have to take a gift , I would just put it in a gift bag :) but After seeing that post, I got inspired and wrapped a gift for 3 year old's birthday.
I wrapped the gift with news paper then added some plash of color, if you have a kids then involve them and let them be creative, doodle, paint, stickers whatever interest them and they will feel proud with their personal touch.
For the bow again i reused some of the balloon ties we had...i don't throw them :)This is the first timed I have wrapped a gift and I am motivated to do this again. Now on, I am gonna collect all different papers, comics etc... and reuse it in gift wrapping.
