Beautiful, ecofriendly gift wrapping is a snap if you use creativity rather than cash:
- Wrap gifts in newsprint, used paper grocery bags, or fabric. Small gifts can even be wrapped in colorful paper scraps left over from other projects.
- Make personalized wrap by decorating plain paper or old shoe boxes. Print or stamp holiday greetings on recycled paper.
- Reuse bows and tie packages with string, ribbon, or raffia that the recipient can reuse. Avoiding tape makes it easier to save and reuse the paper as well.
