Save a tree this Christmas with DIY Gift Wrap
Did you know that approximately 50,000 trees are used to make the 8,250 tones of gift wrap used every Christmas?
It is estimated that if every person used re-usable or recycled gift wrap for just 3 of the gifts they give each year, it would save enough paper to cover 45,000 football fields.
So this year why not try making your own gift wrap and tags, and even cards too. By repurposing and hand decorating you can help the environment as well as give your friends and family a beautiful unwrapping experience this Christmas.
Heres a few ideas to get you started...
