There are thousands of ideas to make the gift wrapping attractive but very few think about going eco friendly. To make the eco friendly gift wrap that you can be proud of, you just need the thread and scrap paper.
First, take two large pieces of scrap paper; draw your favorite shape on the top piece. Cut this shape through top as well as bottom layer of the scrap paper. While choosing the shape and size, make sure your gift will be accommodated easily inside the package. Once the scrap paper is cut, place the gift between both layers and stitch it along the edges using the thread of bright color.
