Gone are the days where newspaper wrapping were frowned upon. Its the green era of eco-friendly living and eco-chic style. This holiday and gifting season can be gentler on the environment. Here are a few giftwrapping idea for the eco-loving soul.
All these wonderful giftwrapping papers are torn from an old issue of Home & Garden magazine – 1996. The glossy magazine pages, classy pictures, full page advertisements were perfect raw material for tearing and using them as gift wrappers. Moreover, these gift wraps were chosen keeping the recipients in mind.
All that was needed for this all-screws paper advertisement was a black ribbon to accentuate the dark colors, raw theme and ofcourse the preferences of the giftee. Though its considered bad and inauspicious to gift black color, there are many who would love it.
Got a music lover amongst your loved ones? It cant get any better than this… you love the person so you gift, and you love your earth and care for it.
Be it a music lover, art admirer or pop art collector, this wrapper is quite a conversation starter 🙂 I love it as this does not need any embellishment.
For the gentle, tender, loving souls, there are plenty of roses and flowers to choose from. Complete the gift with well cordinated satin ribbons and bows. These wraps never fail and are the safest options for any occasion.Dried Flowers and Recycled Paper – Perfect Gift Wrapping Combination for Nature Lovers.
Its best to go with the look and feel of paper. Let it determine the kind of embellishment and decoration it needs. This gift wrapping paper is a beauty by itself and needed nothing more. Yet, a spring of dried baby’s breath flowers does the required magic.
The content areas of the magazine, that look like boring news are perfect for gift wrapping. All they need is a flashy ribbon for contrast. And if the news is interesting, we dont mind not opening the present for longer 🙂
All the above wrappers were sourced from a single magazine issue. There are still many lovely pages that can be used in future. If one magazine can offer so much recycling potential, then it is quite a fodder for thought. It is not about being a cheap-skate when it comes to gifting. It is the thought that matters. Giving a gift as an appreciation is a lovely thought by itself. But giving with care is what makes you stand apart.
While you have loads of fun, make sure it is gentler on everyone! Wishing you happy holidays and exciting recycling season to come.
