Eco-friendly paper is beautiful and can be used in many ways beyond making cards. Why not use it to make a perfect package for small or fragile objects? Take a handmade gift and wrap it with some handmade wrapping paper. The lucky recipient will be overjoyed knowing that you put that extra special touch on the gift just for them!
