Chariteas believes that sustainability includes caring for people and the land. Read below for a DIY Gift wrapping idea that minimizes one time use wrapping materials.
· Desk organization box, basket, or jewelry box.
· Tea or teaware from Chariteas
· Dish/kitchen towel, cloth napkin, or scarf (can be new or gently used)
·Metal or Wood Christmas Ornament
Personalize the ornament with the receivers name and a favorite saying. A metal ornament and a permanent marker will do.
Spread out the towel or other material on a flat surface.
Put the desk organizer box in the center and put the tea or tea set in the box.
Flip the back side of the towel over the tea set. Then do the same for the front side. Adjust and make sure the ends are straight.
Tuck in the sides and bring the sides towards the middle.
Hook the ornament in the middle to tighten the wrapping.
Adjust the ornament to the center.
Voila! A sustainable gift wrap done for anyone on your list.
