Eco-Friendly Wrapping Paper
It's great that most wrapping you find these days is "recyclable." They proudly print that on the packaging. While that is a step in the right direction, we can do better!
Recycling is great, but reusing is better. I know in my family there are gift bags that have been passed back and forth for years. Sometimes you can even reuse wrapping paper.
A cute solution is using newspaper. Make it cute with ribbons you have around the house, or make a cute newspaper flower to put on top. You can even paint it and decorate it.
I show how to make the cute tassel on this package on my Tutorials blog - it's so easy! (Click here for the tutorial.)
People won't think you're just being cheap if you make an effort to make it cute! They'll think you're a responsible citizen!
