Eco-friendly Gift Wrapping

eco-friendly gift wrapping

Every year I try to find ways to wrap the gifts that are somewhat eco-friendly.  This year we made our own bows from old magazine pages.  Thanks to Folding Trees for the tip on how to make these.

You can find the full tutorial from How About Orange.  The bows are ridiculously easy to make.   I can confidently say that I will never buy bows again!

And the kids decided to decorate some old newspapers for the wrapping paper we used on the smaller gifts.

We are still wrapping the larger gifts with traditional paper.  But we are using recycled paper.  And if you buy it the day after Christmas, you can buy it for a lot less.  You just need a place to store it until next Christmas.  If you have a gift wrapping idea you’d like to share, feel free to post it in the comments.
