Don’t get stuck in a wrapping rut this holiday season. Melinda Morris, owner and visionary of Brooklyn-based paperie, Lion in the Sun, offers these tips to make your gifts shine on the outside.
1. Think outside the paper. Fabric, scarves, tote bags, jars are the perfect eco-friendly way to keep your gift under wraps.
2. Waste not, want not – use extra scraps of paper for paper ribbons, decorative fans and flowers on other gifts. Double-sided wrap is even better.
3. Color code. For big families, color coding gifts for each not only makes a pretty picture under the tree, it is a huge time save for Christmas morning.
4. Stamps, stickers, and more. Choose one base color for the gift wrap and buy it in bulk. Then personalize each gift with stickers, stamps, decorative tape, twigs, feathers, and leaves.
Melinda really has some awesome tips that are simple and fun for those gift wrapping, paper loving people, aka…ME!
