Handmade gift wrap & create-it-green

Hello Hello.

As previously mentioned i have not had as much time for Christmas crafts as i'd have liked this year. But i did get to make some handmade gift wrap. i just stamped some kraft paper & tied with wool, really simple. i wrapped some of my other presents in some pretty paper i got in the sale at Paperchase.




Next year i'd really like to make some pom poms or crochet some rope to tie presents with and there's a great article here about upcycling clothes to wrap your presents with that i'd like to give a go. Also check out this tutorial on eco friendly Japanese style gift wrapping, it's like 2 presents in one!

If you are yet to wrap your presents Kirsty has some adorable downloadable gift tags here and also some freebies!

Also, i am super excited to announce that i have been asked to join the design team over at Create-It-Green. i can't wait to see what the other ladies come up with and challenge myself to use green items on my scrapbook pages.
