In a bid to cut down the level of waste this Christmas, I have decided not to purchase any crackers but instead, save one small present that would normally go under the Christmas tree and wrap it beautifully in music sheet paper, bought from my local charity shop, to sit on each person’s place setting around the table.
Not only is this a more sustainable approach, each place setting is personalised (using a named stamp from The English Stamp Company) and I think really adds something special to the Christmas table!
The handmade music sheet bags were created taking inspiration from my very talented friend, Susannah Hemmings. If you would like instructions on how to make these, check out Susannah’s ‘How to’ stories highlight via Instagram @susannahhemmingsstylist.
