Port­land-based com­pany Ilove­han­dles has de­signed wrap­ping pa­per that can have a sec­ond life as origami fig­ures.

Pre­sents are typ­i­cally ripped open by ex­cited re­cip­i­ents but now, in­stead, they are be­ing in­vited to care­fully work their way into a gift. The pa­per can then be used again, avoid­ing it be­ing put in the rub­bish bin and sent to land­fill, or be trimmed and folded into an origami dog, frog, crane, bal­loon, fish or iris.

It is hoped that fu­ture edi­tions of Origami Wrap will be made from re­cy­cled pa­per, fur­ther height­en­ing the sus­tain­abil­ity cre­den­tials of this prod­uct.

For more in­for­ma­tion on how to pur­chase th­ese packs of five 50 cm by 75 cm sheets, visit ilove­han­dles.com.
