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!
