This came about as I had to package some bits up and had no tissue paper in the house (this is my default packaging method, tissue paper then wrapping paper).
I guess necessity is the mother of invention. Hunting through the cupboard for some inspiration I found the greaseproof paper and thought I would give that a go.
It is super easy to cut and sew on the machine and you can add ribbons or a tag with your name on, and as it is a little transparent you can see what you have packaged up.
For some of the recent fabric stuff I have made and given away I have added a little lavender bag inside made up with the greaseproof paper, here is a little pile of them I made up yesterday.
You could do the same with any paper I guess, I have some nice wallpaper at home that would probably make a lovely package and looks a bit more special if it is sewn shut rather that just stuck with sticky tape. Of course this is only really worth doing if you have the sewing machine out already otherwise it will become a bit of a faff!
One of my favourite bits about these packages is that you sometimes get to see the recipients face wondering how to get into it without ruining the pretty packaging ~ you can’t ~ you have to rip it open and that satisfies my evil streak!
