we have harvested nylon/plastic netting...saving them from the landfill.
We store them in a pretty apothecary jar on the counter-top.
(it has been cleaned out with bleach & water...allowed to dry...then painted)...
and then wrapped in re-cycled netting.
We originated this idea in our first book...
Below, you'll find the actual excerpt with detailed instructions on how to
make this environmentally friendly, easy, project.
WHIMSICAL GIFT PACKAGING
You Will Need:
One large, clean drinking cup (like one from a fast-food restaurant)
Nylon netting (from store-bought onion or garlic)
Raffia or other coordinating ribbon
A small piece of masking paper or newsprint
This beautiful package will stand alone as a small hostess gift (you can put cookies or candies inside instead of soup or coffee) or as part of a larger gift basket.
