Advent Calendar 2017 - Day 17

17. Christmas wrapping paper

Forget the paper - go for fabric reusable bags instead. This one is made from an old shiny top.

Just place a present inside - no sticky tape to be seen or wrestled with. (I can never find the end.)



  1. Never thought of that sort of recycling. I do make bags to fill from fabric about November time to fill like a hampers though

  2. Very clever :) we use and reuse and reuse paper bags - so the bags that my folks received their gifts last year will be the bags we receive this year :)

  3. I have always thought your idea of wrapping was a good one.

  4. In great example of using an item in an unexpected way instead of tossing! It's cute also!

  5. What a brilliant idea and the bag will look great again and again

  6. Great idea!! I never thought of just sewing up the bottom of a top and using that as a bag. You have now given me an idea.

    God bless.

  7. I love that, pretty and practical. x
