hip eco tip....

happy monday, friends! my kids go to quite a number of birthday parties and i'm always trying to do things a bit differently to help the environment and educate my kids about the 3 r's (reduce, reuse, recycle). i try to stay away from traditional wrapping paper and gift bags. instead i like to wrap books (it's the easiest!) in grocery bag paper then i decorate it with stickers or stamps or these wonderful paint dots (above). how do you wrap your gifts these days?


  1. Great idea! I tend to keep all the gift bags I receive and reuse them for other events. I haven't had to buy a new one in quite a while!


  2. Great idea! I've been going through all my remnants of fabrics, papers, and once all of these are used up, then we will start with paper bags and dunnage news.

  3. This is so cute! I love doing things like this : )

  4. I have been so irritated with "Do-A-Dots" - never saw what they're good for other than dots. Now I finally have a good use for them!

    Thanks for visiting!
