Joel Henriques

We are big fans of d-i-y gift wrapping made of found, free, repurposed or cheap materials. Why spend the money on bought wrap when there’s so much good stuff just lying around. We really like Joel Henriques’ idea (of the ever-inspiring blog Made by Joel): use torn out pages from old art magazines…

or design magazines…

or foreign language newspapers newspapers…

…or kid’s drawings…

His paper-cutouts-as-ribbons are swell, too!
