Get wrapped up in the holiday season. Use old newspapers, craft paper or recycled brown bags from the grocery store as the base for your own beautifully festive wrapping creations. Wrap the package in the "basic" base paper, add jolly ribbon, tie on an ornament, or make a gift tag from a photo of the person to whom the gift is intended.
Colorful shredded paper makes a unique bow when tied to the top of the box with tinsel or ribbon. Or you can use strips of expensive gift paper as a decorative narrow band, framing the center of the package on top of the recycled paper as the base. These exquisite and charming creative packages are fun to make…and a gift to give.
