See How They Wrap IV

We wouldn't expect anything less than super-chic, earth-friendly gift wrap from Rubie Green founder Michelle Adams. This year, her presents are covered in natural fiber papers from Kate's Paperie (the two in the foreground) and in paper from Loop (grey package in background). Loop uses FSC certified paper and soy inks. Of course, Michelle has used scraps of her own RG fabrics for the wonderful bows.




BTW: The stripe "ribbon" is Michelle's "Delavan," named for her former colleague, domino's very cool editor-at-large, Tom Delavan.

Reminder: If you prefer not to shop the day after Thanksgiving, consider a visit to Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles Christmas House. For a festive and educational family day, visit the High.

I love the last gift wrap, the wood-grain paper with the striped ribbon. Very chic.

Oh, this is a great idea! Always looking for ways to use that last little bit of a favorite fabric.

Love the idea and these are adorable!

Also ever since I became a bride-to-be after my fiance proposed to me with a gorgeous diamond engagement ring from www.idonowidont.com we were thinking of buying little gifts for all the bridesmaids.

These little ribbons and packages are adorable and will make the gifts I give to them look elegant and perfect, thanks for the tip!
