I can’t say enough how much I LOVE this picture of presents using three simple ingredients:

  • newspapers
  • red and white baker’s twine
  • beautiful tags  (shown are from Joyful Joyful)

I have already ordered a large amount of Baker’s twine (3,360-Yards 4-Ply Red-and-White Bakers Packing Twine).  The price per yard is VERY low when you buy this much.  I think I’ll have it for the next 5 years!

Glad I stumbled upon the original post from Allora Handmade with the beautiful picture above.  Great blog!

What else do you reuse to wrap gifts that make them special and eco-friendly?

    I love it too! I think its pretty while other people (ahem, family!) think its "cheap"!

    Thanks for the link to the twine, I'm always on the lookout for it at the dollar store but I've never seen it, just regular twine which I love too!

    I did this last year and I find that the key to making it look good is to use the bags with no colour and as much wording as possible.
