During the holidays I was so crazy for our Great Big Desk Calendar that I decided to purchase two. One calendar was used for wrapping holiday packages and the second for the intended use – a calendar! The gifts received so many ooohs and ahhhs that I purchased a few more when they went on sale. After all, the desk version provides 18 months of 24 3/4″ x 19 1/4″ Paper Bag sheets. It’s a bargain at $7.49!
By pairing with ingredients left over in my stash of craft supplies, like gingham cloth tape, baker’s twine, opaque uniball pens and glassine envelopes, these calendars make creating enticing little packages fast and fun. I especially enjoy using old books and gift wrap with my envelope liner templates. It’s a great way to accent packages with something more personal and conversational, as well as a clever way to hold an enclosed message.
With half a year ahead and plenty of occasions to celebrate, we thought this would be the perfect focus for a special Paper Source Earth Day event. Craft the night away at our ReNew, ReUse, ReCreate – Earth Day Event, happening April 21st from 7pm – 9pm (local time). Seats are limited and sell quickly, so sign up now!
Happy gift wrapping and reusing!
