I have to say, I'm a little disappointed in myself for not thinking of this sooner, because how obvious an idea is this? Use tulle for tissue!
I love tulle for its almost magical airiness, the way that the colour is so changeable, from light wisps of just a layer or two, to intense hues when you pile it up. It's such a fun material to play with.
And it really adds something extra to tissue in a gift bag. So you don't have to use yards and yards of tulle, mix the netting in with tissue paper. Here I used white tissue so the pale peach tulle would show better. But how fun would a teal tulle look against pale blue tissue, or neon orange look against yellow? Just cut squares of tulle roughly the size of sheets of tissue, then fluff and fill the gift bag as usual, alternating between pieces of netting and tissue.+ Gift wrapping and photography by Corinna vanGerwen
