How-To: Use Recycled Materials for Wrapping Gifts

Home Paper Crafts

John Boak’s blog Wrap Artist is filled with ingenious ways to wrap items by recycling materials you have around the house from foam meat trays to bottle caps. Pictured above is the recycled-bottle lily wrap where Boak used a kefir bottle and cut off the printed wrap to tranform it into a white lilly.

John’s wrapping artistry was featured on the cover of our paper issue, CRAFT: 05 which is available now in the Maker Shed.
