eco birthday wrapping for kids
This year I’m looking to reduce my carbon footprint and teach the kids in my world by example.
Instead of going out and buying wrapping paper, I recycled some newspapers from work (using the funny pages) and old kraft paper. I used scraps of knitting yarn and cardstock leftover from the wedding (the backside is covered in trials) to create the wrapping you see to your right.
The animals playing instruments are in keeping with the party theme and can be coloured and turned into brooches for added fun (we’ll see if they even have time to notice at the party)!.
