Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

Christmas Gift Wrapping Using Magazines/Newspaper (Eco Friendly)

12.12.2010


a page from Harper's Bazaar prove to be handy

I have decided to use the mountain of magazines I buy every month (about more 5 magazines I subscribed to) to gift wrap my Christmas presents this year. Why do we need to buy wrapping papers nowadays? It's going to be torn and thrown away! not unless your present comes with free gift wrapping from the shop, I won't stop you from spending $$ on wrapping papers when u have tons of them at home. Yes newspapers, old books, magazines can be recycle into wrapping paper. Add a bit of your own personal touch or make it creative using things at home. You might find it interesting too. Colorful pages with smiley faces is best! comic page from newspapers make it very retro like. Do avoid "misfortune topics" like "accidents killed XXX" or "house burnt down xxx". Be tactful!

  6. Cath: brilliant money saving idea and also eco friendly! newspapers can be fun, but avoid the too inky types which tends to smudge off people's hand. For now I'm gona use magazines coz just too many at home n too sayang to throw! sob sob.. but can't keep also for so long..

  7. LOVE it! I've also been using old books to decoupage product boxes (popsicle, mac and cheese, etc.) so I can use them for shipping and/or present storage.
