Challenge #4 – Wrap it Up
Four days remain until Christmas, have you finished your shopping yet? Rather than toss the gifts you so lovingly made or purchased into a gift bag, be a little more creative with your presentation. We challenge you to forgo the traditional wrap and try something new or use something that can be reused. Here are some of my favourites I've come across online.
Brown Kraft Paper
The simplicity of the Kraft paper marked with a gold Sharpie and red ribbon looks gorgeous.
Old Book Pages
Some other alternatives to try include:
- newspaper and string
- sheet music
Although it can be fun to wrap small gifts and gift cards into larger boxes, here are some creative ways to put small gifts under the tree.
Gift Card Snow Globe
Tiny Plastic Animals
You can also try repurposing a mug, jar, or small basket to contain several small items.
Give an item around the home new life as a container for gifts rather than throwing it away.
Old Sweaters or Fabrics
Toilet Paper Rolls
Hopefully some of these cute ideas inspired you as well. Share any neat ideas you have seen or tried on our Facebook page for a chance to win a 9 Lives Design 2015 calendar.
