To DIY For – make by hand for a greener gift

This video from the ‘To DIY For’ series shows you how to create fine-looking gifts without the waste by swapping wrapping paper for fabric.

The City of Sydney’s Green Villages team have created a trio of DIY videos with step-by-step downloadable instructions with a little help from their friends at Etsy.com - the world’s most vibrant handmade marketplace.

If getting crafty is not for you, then give some thought to what you buy, where it came from, who made it and how far it travelled.
