Here are some great ideas for Recycled Gift Wrap – enjoy:)


Old Dress Patterns for tissue paper, with a pretty string and gift tag:)

child gift wrap

Tots drawings – we go through copious amounts of paper in our house so it’s great not to put it all in recycling, what could be better for a grandparent? No tots drawings? I guess you have had a lot of Christmas catalogue’s through the door which you could sew together:)


Newspaper gift bags – perfect for my Dad, I will be making him one out of the Financial Times, as he is a regular reader:)


Or fancy something stylish and slightly more subdued? brown paper can be easily jazzed up to create a special gift wrap.


Planning in giving away some of your own brews? Bag the bottle up – bag bottle is made from a former shirt sleeve.

Cosy Gift Wrap

Have an old sweater lying around? Love this cosy gift wrap idea.

    Lovely ideas ๐Ÿ™‚ I cut off the little ribbon hanging straps you get in all women’s clothing these days (they just get in the way anyway) and add them to my ribbon bag for Christmas decs. Free ribbon and in lots of different colours!
