11/11/11Nature Wraps: DIY green gift wrap for the Holidays

Yay! Happy Friday! In the past few weeks several of you have asked if I was going to put together more eco-friendly gift wrapping ideas for the holidays this year because last years’ ideas for wrapping holiday gifts with kraft paper were a hit! Well, here they are, 100% compostable gift wrap using all flowers and leaves (and just a bit of green artist’s tape).  They are quite jungalicious are they not?
Have an amazing weekend you all and I hope you feel inspired to use all kinds of crazy sh*t to wrap your gifts this year :P

    You can never go wrong with groumet food and drink gift baskets – not with so many to choose from! If an elaborate, expensive champagne and caviar basket is outside your budget, go for simple with Shari’s Berries, or a single bottle of Dom Perignon with some chocolate dipped apricot. These combinations are far more affordable, but speak just as eloquently to your good taste, which people will want to associate themselves with…..
