Use double-sided tape

Double-sided tape is a gift wrapper's secret weapon. It helps you get a neat finish on your wrapped gifts, and best of all, our eco-craft double sided tape is plastic-free and biodegrades. 

With our eco-tape you can easily tear it (which means no more sticky scissors), press down onto the paper and then peel the other side off using the finger-lift excess. Press the other side of the wrap on and voila! 

Gift Bags

Our favourite wrap is a quick and easy gift bag. Not only do they look fantastic, but they are quick and easy to make once you've got the hang of them. 

Best for: 

  • Small to medium gifts 
  • Awkwardly shaped gifts

What you need: 

  • A sheet of Curlicue wrapping paper (we recommend rolled sheets so that there aren't any additional crease lines, but folded works too!) 
  • Plastic-free double sided tape
  • Scissors

Nice to have: 

  • Twine 
  • Swing tags
  • Hole punch

Origami Bows

Making an Origami Bow is the perfect way to add a special touch to your gift and use up offcuts of wrapping paper to reduce waste (and they can be reused! Just use some of our double-sided eco tape to attach it to the gift and remove before you recycle the wrap).
