Start with kraft paper (or paper bags! Yay for recycling!). Then layer on baker’s twine, and a bit of greenery. Try holly or wintergreen, and tuck into the twine for a simple embellishment.
Burlap and ribbons
Start with kraft paper and layer strips of burlap with ribbon (try gingham). Finish by tying with natural twine (jute or sisal). Add a few snips of fir for holiday look and color.
Strike the right note
Musical note, that is! Print sheet music to wrap small gifts, then tie with ribbons and add pine cones (we chose a small sprig of hemlock).
