If you still have an old map, why not use that for wrapping? The unusual designs guarantee your gifts will be one of a kind. And don’t worry if there are notes scrawled across the paper. Old events or directions will add some unique flair to the presents. FUROSHIKI Fabric is an excellent substitute for wrapping paper. You can use a scarf to create two gifts in one or pull out scraps of fabric from old projects. The traditional Japanese practice of furoshiki is all about wrapping goods in fabric. Described as “functional fabric origami,” you’d be amazed at how a few well-placed folds can turn your gift into a work of art. Learn how to wrap anything, from boxes to bottles, at ceas.ku.edu/furoshiki- instructional-videos. You don’t have to follow the same gift wrap habits year after year. After the effort you put into finding just the right present, you should be able to make your gift wrap just as special. Find a method that’s uniquely you and get started! 3 CREATIVE GIFT WRAP ALTERNATIVES
There’s something magical about seeing a stack of presents wrapped in bright, multicolored paper. However, that enchanting scene quickly evaporates a few hours later when all those wads of wrapping paper and plastic bows are chucked unceremoniously into the garbage. What if we told you there are countless ways you can still enjoy wrapping and unwrapping presents, without all the waste? Here are a few creative gift wrap alternatives to consider this holiday season. BROWN PAPER BAGS With the holiday season comes holiday shopping, and if you opt out of plastic grocery bags, you’re sure to have a surplus of brown paper bags in the pantry. Drop a present into the bag, tape it shut, and you’re good to go. Add some simple lace or a ribbon for an old-timey feel or get creative with stamps and hand-drawn artwork. This wrap job lets your imagination run wild. OLD MAPS AND CALENDARS These days, pretty much every phone has a built-in GPS, so you probably won’t need the map from your 1999 road trip anytime soon. Testimonials “Mr. Hill, Ms. Shawana, and everyone who works in his office has been so wonderful to me in the time that they have been helping me. They are professional, friendly, and awesome people to work with. And they care about their clients. As hard as this experience has been for me, they have made it a pleasant one — as much as they could for my situation. I will recommend them to my family and friends! And if you’re looking for a good lawyer who cares and gets results, I highly, highly recommend Mr. Hill!” –Jenn M. “I had the pleasure of being a client of Mr. Hill. He was super informative about what was going on with my case. He also made it easy to contact him. His paralegal was super sweet and so was his office staff. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else to handle any kind of personal injury case. Although those types of things are super stressful, it was nice knowing someone like Mr. Craig had my back and I didn’t have anything to worry about. I definitely would recommend him to anyone. Amazing team!” –Erin F.
