Wrap it up!

Everyone is trying to be so "green" these days, but just think of all the paper you waste on wrapping presents! Every holiday requires a different kind of paper, which ultimately ends up in the trash. Instead, why not create your own paper or reuse something around your house?

Check out these ideas:

P.S. My FIL has been wrapping gifts in old maps for years. Love it.

  1. This is such a good idea, I received a birthday present this year that was wrapped in the comic section of the newspaper! Which was entertaining but it got another use out of the newspaper before it was recycled!

  2. I just posted a great flower vase on my blog. I bought the flowers from the Dolalr store but re-used a cake mix box, newpaper, and sticks from a budding plant that needed trimmed for the vase/hanger. Take a look!
