DIY Holiday Wrapping Paper and Cards!

December 2, 2018 | 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


The holiday season is for giving but it is also the time of year when we generate mountains of waste and packaging, most of which ends up in the landfill or the recycle bin. This year, why not plan ahead and do your part to reduce waste? Join us for a family friendly workshop to re-use materials and print your own decorative wrapping paper and cards, and explore some creative gift ideas that reduce and re-use waste.
