RECYCLED GIFT WRAP IDEAS
For this present, I used a recycled brown paper bag, a strip of burlap and some old buttons. I wrapped the present in the brown paper, cut a strip of white paper with some decorative scissors to give it a nice edge, then glued that onto the brown paper. I cut a thinner strip of burlap and layered that on top of the white paper, and attached three buttons on top using hot glue.
Here, I recycled some old tissue paper, I crinkled it up and then straightened it out again, and wrapped the present in it. I cut the handles off a gift bag and used those as the ribbon, I attached them onto the tissue paper using hot glue. Then, I added my handmade paper bow, made out of an old brown paper bag; you can follow my tutorial for how to make a paper bow here!
For this gift, I used a brown paper bag as the wrapping paper again. Then, I cut up strips of burlap and used that to tie around the gift, attaching it with hot glue. I made a bow out of burlap strips too, sewed a button on top of it, and attached the whole thing onto the present using hot glue.
I used the crinkled up white tissue paper again to wrap this present. I cut thin strips of burlap to make the ribbon and frayed the edges a little bit to make it look a little more decorative. Then, using hot glue, I attached a handmade paper bow made out of thick scrapbook paper.
I embellished this brown paper bag wrapped present with layers of white paper with a decorative edge, more brown paper, a thick strip of burlap, and a string of "twine" (a gift bag handle). Then using hot glue, I attached a couple of blue and green buttons, spacing them evenly.
For this last gift, I wrapped it in brown paper, using decorative scissors I cut thin strips of white paper and glued then onto the length of the package, and then I made a paper bow using a page from a magazine and attached it on top.
I love wrapping gifts, I always have, so this was a lot of fun for me! I hope I've given you some good ideas for the next time you're wrapping a gift for someone! There's nothing more fun than receiving a present that's as pretty on the outside as it is once it's unwrapped! Have a great weekend, Everybody! Happy Crafting!
