Green gift wrapping

Gift wrapping you can do yourself with old envelopes and help the environment... This idea to give a personal touch to my gifts I found on Martha Stewart website.

A nice and green way to reuse the huge amount of envelopes I received and saved throughout the year. Also, I reused some old paper bags.

You can print the template here or just trace the lines of pine cones on a sheet of paper/old envelopes and cut them out. Punch some holes to add ornaments.

Hello Cris !

I follow your blogs a long time... And love all of them ! Just like you, I love my family, home, decoration and all those "little" but great things that enrich our lives !
I'd like to ask you something. I also live in Campinas, and would like to know a name of a photografer to take photos of me and my family, outdoors (just like that American ones). Do you know any ? Would you be so kind to tell me a name ? I remember sometime you told that you are used to take photos of you and your family, too.

Well, thank you for delighting us with your recepies, photos and stories. Keep doing the good work !

Late Merry Christmas greetings and wishing you and your family a wonderful New Year! This is a marvelous idea to use up envelopes and cards which I can never bring myself to throw away but have little room to store. Thanks for the great ideas!
