It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas is a couple of days away, last-minute holiday shoppers are scrambling across malls and outlets to grab last minute gift ideas for their friends and family.
With all the wonderful gifts comes the need of wonderful wrapping paper as well. This holiday season, go green! We understand every year we spend money on countless rolls of wrapping paper that is pretty and all for show in anticipation for the gift inside. However once we have our gift in our hands we immediately throw the beautifully crafted wrapping paper away into the trash. What a sad waste of paper! Instead, why not decorate and hand make your wrapping paper from recycled sustainable wrapping paper? It’s fun, crafty, and more personalized than buying glittery wrapping paper from the store!
At Seams for Dreams we support 100% recyclables, sustainability and up-cycling. Our team has warmly created top 3 gift wrap ideas for you this holiday season.
Christmas Gift Wrap Idea 1: For the World Traveler.
This design is perfect for she or he that travels around the world as their full time job, or for fun. What better way of saying “Happy Holidays” by giving them a gift wrapped in a world map? Choose from maps of Europe, Asia, North America, South America, and hand-craft any extra decorations you want! Choose a string of whichever color of yarn you prefer and tie it around the gift in whatever shape you decide. Then take a button and place it at your “place” in the world. Finally, wrap the string around the button to tie it all together.
Christmas Gift Wrap Idea 2: The Music Lover.
Beethoven, Mozart, and Bach. Ah, the classics to Christmas music. Joy to the World for your loved one who is a music passion, this gift wrap décor will make their hearts sing. Give them a song in their favorite notes and tunes. Featuring music notes on both sides of the wrapping paper, you can further decorate the gift by placing pine cones, glitter, and sparkle in the center. Afterwards simply secure the ornaments with a string of yarn or rope. Slide the finished masterpiece under the tree on Christmas Eve, and wake up to joy on their face. Captivating yet harmonizing, surprise him or her this Christmas with melody.
Christmas Gift Wrap Idea 3: Rustic Elegance.
This Classic yet humble wrapping paper is best for that special someone. Grandmother, mother, aunt, or godmother. For someone who has an old school taste, yet classy. Made from 100% sustainable fiber recycled brown wrapping paper, guarantee an antique finish with a touch of old school. Simply use a neutral-classic colored ribbon, cheese cloth, and wrap it in whichever design you want. Finish it off with a decor such as an olive branch in the center.
So if you are a traveler, music lover or just someone who want to make someone in your family smile this Christmas, give gifts wrapped creatively using recycled materials, helping the environment at the same time. Enjoy wrapping your gifts this Christmas from Seams for Dreams!
