Easy, scientific way to wrap a gift

I love giving and receiving beautifully-wrapped gifts. It’s a thoughtful gesture that is making a creative comeback. I have figured out a simple, sustainable, and scientific way for me to wrap an aesthetically pleasing gift quickly. 1) neutral wrapping paper is a safe bet 2) Layer tchotchkes in different textures and prints to make it fun 3) Add a sprig of something living to make it come alive!

Materials

– roll of brown kraft paper or a paper bag (recyclable materials!)

– decorative washi tape (optional)

– sprig of something living, or some tschotkes you have laying around (once I planted a sprig someone had used on my gift, and had it for over a year!)

– twine or cloth ribbon (I save ribbon people use to giftwrap my gifts)

– a gift!

Directions: It’s easy, just wrap it and bling it out!

There’s a sample bottle of Thieves, some Yarrow plant from my garden, a 3-D textured tag I made, and the polka dot thing is a line of hair ties I have.
