Boxless and eco-friendly wrap

I tried, and hopefully not in vain, to be Martha Stewart early this morning after my school run.  Here is my first batch of gifts, boxless and wrapped using eco-friendly materials.  

For each gift in the photo, I made use of a 1/8 cut of Manila or craft paper (P2/whole sheet), half a specialty paper I printed with snowflakes design (P2.675/sheet) and 1/2 meter red ribbon (P1.50/meter).

Just keeping up with my self-imposed frugal holidays. :)


  1. Oooh, nice idea! I also plan to avoid using wrapping papers this year. Will scour the web for wrapping ideas. :-)

    1. thanks marie angeli! same here. i wouldn't feel too bad now when i see this wrapper ripped and thrown straight away although it would be best if it can still be reused for wiping glass window panes etc. :)

  2. i like the look. minimalist yet crafted from the heart. am sure the recipients of those gifts would appreciate it.

  3. Cute and tipid.. Happy Holidays!

  4. times are hard and it's always prudent to be frugal :)
    i help my mom think of practical giveaways too for Christmas and it's most likely food or something they can use for the house.

  5. I love the idea. Mommy and I will do this for our eco-bag gifts for our colleagues. Eco-friendly na, tipid pa.

  6. Me too. I am scouting some gift tags that I can print and I will be using magazines, manila paper and newspaper as well. :)
