Gifts sent to you in a handmade calico bag
I love making things. This time I have I made some calico gift bags. Your handmade botanical skincare and candle products will arrive looking their best. I love to be sustainable and re-use resources wherever possible. It’s much better to re-use packaging so your gift will keep on giving. There's no need to throw so many things in the bin so much. Let's go green and use less packaging.
When you open your Australia Post package, you will find my products wrapped in gift paper. And then into one of my handmade calico bags. Calico is a tough cotton material and its very versatile with many uses in the home.
Here are some ideas to try after you’ve unwrapped your products. Re-use your calico bag in many ways:
Use it to hang up in the bathroom. My Cleansing bars can air dry in the calico bag on a hook in the bathroom.
Soak oats in boiling water in calico bag. Leave to cool to tepid and use as a face mask.
Bring your Persian Rose Repair Body Cream to the pool to moisturise your skin after a swim.
Bring your Cleansing Bar to the pool or gym to get clean afterwards.
As a peg bag on your clothes line.
For dog treats and toys while walking the dog.
For packing carrot sticks and snacks to take to school.
For the boy’s marble collection.
Or a girl’s shell collection. Check out the sea shells on a Broome beach coming to life!
Guitar picks and tuners.
These are my silly ideas for re-using and re-purposing things in a throw away world! Leave a comment on other ways you use your calico gift bag.
