Holiday Recycle Wrap-it-Up


I like to recycle for two reasons, well actually three.
First, is the obvious because I am a conservationist.
Secondly, in a small house we make use of every inch of
space, and that includes spots to store wrapping materials.
And finally ~ who can afford to buy new all the time in 
this current economy?

So ~ here is a Christmas wrap from an used brown paper bag.
Some white craft paint.  A few twigs and a pine cone found on
a walk, and left over yarn from a crochet project.



Suddenly I have a sweet little forest scene for pennies from items
I already had.  No trip to the store for wrapping paper.

I am joining

and

Bentley ~ your big day is Wednesday!  Are you excited??

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  3. Susan, this is so smart and beautiful. I never buy wrapping paper and use all manner of things for my very few gifts.

  6. Hurray for you! I totally agree on the little bit of space to store things. I can't walk in my bedroom now with all the boxes and gift wrap!

    XO,

  7. What a beautiful gift. I love everything about your wrapping. I'm using brown shipping paper from the dollar tree this year on my gifts and embellishing them with ribbon and toadstool tags. I love what you've done with the white paint. So charming.

  8. Well done! I like this idea, and it is really so simple - except that I'd never have thought of it.
