DIY Earth Day Gift Box

Here is something you can make for friends and family for Earth Day: Their own Earth Day Gift Box!!

Earth Day is Sunday April 22, 2102 this year.

Here’s how you do it:

PACKAGING

I recycle my empty Glymm, LuxeBox and GlossyBoxes to store the items. All of them are sturdy, come with tissue paper and ribbon. I keep all of it and have started packing them with items.

You may also use some fabric bags (made with recycled fabric) or any other type of packaging which can be reused, such as containers, paint cans, shoe boxes…
