Simply Green Giving
Create Beautiful and Organic Wrappings, Tags, and Gifts from Everyday Materials

Chapter One

Cards and Tags

You may find this surprising, but even though e-mail invitations and online greeting cards are an ecological, tree-free choice, I am not a fan. I've always found something too convenient and impersonal about receiving something like a birthday greeting via e-mail. Something about the phrase, "Click here to view your greeting," turns me off.

I know there are many of you who agree with me that there is nothing more touching and personal than receiving a handwritten card, invitation, or even a gift tag from a loved one. Whenever I receive a beautiful note or card, I save them. Instead of photo albums to remind me of special events, handwritten notes do the trick for me.

Perhaps in a fast-paced, disposable world, making a gift tag by hand or handwriting a note on a card is one way to remind everyone to slow down.

This chapter is full of ideas to create unusual and ecological gift tags that you can use on all types of gifts, for all types of celebrations. If you've got a stash of cards tucked away in a drawer someplace, bring them out. I have a number of ideas how to display them, recycle them, and even transform them into something spectacularly decorative.
