In the last few years the piles of wrapping that need to be thrown away have made me uncomfortable. I really dislike the idea of waste. I've been trying to come up with ways to make gift wrap that is reusable but is still festive.
I love to make little boxes out of cards or scrapbook paper. I made a few today, but I'll hold off making any more so I can make them fit the gifts.
I like to make a few new drawstring bags to use as gift bags every year. I made several today. I might make a few more to live in the Christmas stockings to hold gifts after they come out of the stockings. I'd like to avoid as much wear and tear on the knit stockings as possible.
I really love this Eco Christmas Gift Wrap tutorial. It seems to me that it would be fun as a gift for pretend play as well. I just had to try it out. I'm pleased with the results. I'll definitely make some more.
I finished some pj pants today. I'm also sending off some pillowcases with them so I wrapped them up in pillowcases.
