weave wrap + a holiday link party
December is here and that means Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwanzaa are right around the corner so it is the perfect time to share all your delicious holiday dishes and decor, along with your favorite Winter treats and projects. Help get us inspired!
Each of us will have our own project or recipe to share so make sure to stop by to check out what we have each created as well as to link up your own winter or holiday inspired posts.
When I think of recycled gift wrap, the first thing that comes to mind is using recycled paper (brown bags, newspapers, etc.) as wrapping paper. This weave wrap is my variation on the classic brown paper package.
brown paper bag
① Take the bag apart at the glued seams and cut into strips
② Wrap strips around the box in one directions, taping at the ends.
③ Weave strips in the opposite direction: over, under, over, under. Shift strips to hide the tape when finished.
The weaved effect is interesting on it’s own, but it can also be finished with ribbon. And, if you’re going for a more recycled look, use strips that show print from the bag.
Reduce. Reuse. Wrap.
Now that you have seen my project, it is time for you to share your projects, crafts, recipes, whatever you have come up with that is Winter or Holiday related via the linky tool below.
Your project will show up on all the host’s blogs so you only need to link up once but, remember, all of us are sharing something different for the party. So make sure to visit Black Fox Homestead, Life with the Hawleys, Lilacs and Longhorns, Practically Functional, The Thrifty Rebel and Yellow Spool and Claiming Our Space to check them all out.
The party will be up until Thursday, December 20 and then on Friday, December 21, each host will pick their favorite two link ups. So mark your calendar to check back to see if you were feature.
Just a few guidelines:
1. If you aren’t already a follower, we would love it if you would add each of the hosts.
2. Link ups should be Winter or Holiday related. (No shops or other link parties please)
3. Try to visit some of the other link ups and leave a comment. Everyone loves visitors!
4. You don’t need to link back but we would appreciate it if you would display the button on your blog or in your post to let your own readers know about the party.
