Disposable Plastic Tablecloth for Wrapping
Here at Boxwood we are always trying to explore new ways to wrap gifts. Today I am happy to share one of our new favorites: Disposable tablecloths! You can find them at any grocery or party supply store costing about $3 per large tablecloth.
Believe me when I say this stuff is amazing to wrap with! Here are three different ways I used an aqua tablecloth:
As a Filler: I cut squares of tablecloth and put into the gift bag, just like I would tissue paper. Sometimes by the time I get a gift to a party my tissue paper is all smushed and wrinkled…but the plastic holds its shape beautifully. Love!
As Gift Wrap: I used the plastic exactly as I would wrapping paper. The only difference is the plastic is quite translucent, so you have to use a few layers. It is actually easier to wrap up the ends of your present as it doesn’t hold its creases like paper does if you need a re-do. Also, tape sticks to the plastic better than paper.
As Trimming: When cut into strips, the plastic was a cross between rafia/ribbon. it is so fun to work with.
The presents look very polished with their shiny plastic finish, and I can’t wait to give them to their recipients!
With the great price (I only used a fraction of the tablecloth), ease of wrapping and pretty finish I will be buying many more plastic tablecloths in the future. What do you think?
