I, finally, ran out of wrapping paper that I bought so many years ago on sale. I also did not have any more of my fabric gift bags that I like to sew through out the year.
No problem, I saw a Pinterest link about using newspaper as wrapping paper. We don't get the paper. We read on line, but we get so many advertisements in the mail. Since I use the advertisements for other eco-friendly ideas (lining the shelves, wrapping around breakables, and making patterns for sewing) I decided to use the advertisements as gift wrap. I even made a bow.
I wish that I could give instructions on the bow, but I just winged it and made loops until it look right. I used a glue gun to keep the bow just right.
Just wanted to share an idea and wish every one a Merry Christmas or season's greetings for whatever holiday that you may celebrate in your home. Hope you all have a great time
