Its September and that means that we can OFFICIALLY talk about Christmas! For us wrappers and paper lovers, what better time of year is there?!
In fact, Christmas is such a big deal to ‘our kind’ that I am running a series of wrapping workshops in the run up to Christmas AND I have made my own gift tags AND put together eco-friendly wrapping kits for everyone (who wants to buy one!) Yep, that’s right… Wrap It, gift tags are an actual, real life, thing! And we’re totally saving the world, whilst making gifts look beautiful!
The kits are super cute and include; 3 metres of Kraft brown paper (its recyclable), 12 metres of twine in a choice of colours – all Christmassy colours- eeeeep (re-use it again and again), and most importantly 10. Wrap it. Gift tags. This kit will make even the most boring presents (marigolds anyone?!) look glamourous and exciting under the tree.
I like to theme the ‘under-the-tree’ presents…just enjoy the delicious coordination before everything is unwrapped and the whole house looks like there has been some sort of natural disaster.
So, everything I’ve made will be available to buy at the workshops – if this feels like a bit of you, here’s the list of deets:
