Wrappily + Island Gypsy Hawaii = Happiness

Aloha amigos!

As you can imagine, Maui is a small island. And word gets around quite quickly about, well, everything. And a while back I began hearing the word “Wrappily.” Being the upcycle-lover that I am, naturally I had to check out this eco-friendly Made-in-Maui business.



In a nutshell, Wrappily is a company that recycles newsprint into beautiful designs for wrapping paper. Much to my delight, Sara Smith, the owner of Wrappily, asked some of us Maui bloggers if we’d be interested in using their paper for a fun craft or d.i.y. project. Umm…yes!!! Paper is like my love language, and upcycled paper…even better!


For my d.i.y. project I decided to update a framed Hawaiian card and create a decorative matte for the art. I just love how it turned out! It brightens up our tiny cottage bathroom and makes me smile.



The paper is double-sided, so I used one side for the larger matte, and the other side for the smaller matte. It looks much crisper with the new paper.






Y’all, I don’t think this is the last time you’ll be seeing me use this fun paper. I have about 1.2 million ideas of ways to use it. I love it when a crafty plan comes together, don’t you? Be sure to check out my Pinterest for more fun creative ideas, as well as the blog on Wrappily. They just announced their new “Lucky We Live Hawaii” designs and I’m in love with those as well! Ahh, so much paper, so little time. LOL!

With mucho aloha,


(Note: While Wrappily provided the paper for this project, I was not compensated in any other way, and the opinions contained in this post are 100% my own.)



Happy thoughts anyone? xoxo Island Gypsy
