Can’t part with any fabric from your stash to use as gift wrapping this season? Chewing the Cud, a San Francisco company, has the answer with Give Wraps. Viola, the designer behind the wraps, chose organic cotton for her product. “Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that are gentle on our planet,” Viola says. “Soy-based inks are less harmful to the environment, compared to petroleum-based inks.”
The wraps make a gift even more special, with imprinted messages like “Give joy”, “Give peace” and “Give thanks.” The wrap can be reused as a scarf, pillow cover or in the sewing project of your choice. One bride used a handful of Give Luck wraps to create a quilt for her wedding guests to sign.
And don’t worry, you can make your package look just as lovely as the photo, using the step-by-step instructions on the company’s blog.
