Eco-friendly Gift Tags and Gift Wrapping

by Dinah Wulf

Here are some creative and inspiring eco-friendly gift tags and gift wrapping ideas in time for the holidays.

 

Check out these beautiful gift tags made out of recycled CD’s from our friends at Bellenza!

 

Also from Bellenza, here is a tutorial for making eco-friendly gift packaging with decoupage paper mosaics.

 

Personalize your gift wrapping.  Check out this awesome idea from my brother.  Shipped in a box, “Mike’s Private Stash” was filled with his favorite chocolate and candy. By the way, my hubby ate this entire box of candy in a couple days… did I mention there were probably twenty York peppermint patties inside and then some?!

 

Recycle old boxes and newspaper and make a cute gift basket.  Embellish it with ribbon or craft a book page flower or book page bow.

 

Embellished Keys for gift tags.  I don’t know about you but I can probably dig up a handful of keys in my junk drawer that I have no idea where they belong to. These sparkly lovelies are from My Salvaged Treasures.

 

Here are some unique ideas from A Subtle Revelry.  Use cupcake wrappers to embellish a gift or use a shirt to wrap it up.

 

Finally, here are some pretty brown paper packages tied up with string from Pintrest.

 

Happy gift wrapping!
