Present Wrapping Ideas

Take paper bags from trash to treasure by using them as your holiday wrapping paper. Up-cycle your grocery and lunch bags and add little embellishments such as buttons, ribbon, leftover scraps of paper and fabric, and paper doilies.

Here are our ideas for easy, inexpensive, and green present-wrapping:

  1. With a sharpie marker and your best handwriting, write festive holiday words onto a paper sack; wrap the present in the paper sack and tie with a black ribbon.
  2. Tear strips of leftover fabric scraps into long pieces; scrunch up and sew the fabric in a straight line, then tie around a present.
  3. Fold a simple doily over the top of a bag; trim the sides, and add a tag.
  4. Accordion fold a piece of colored paper and glue or staple the inside edges together to form a half circle; repeat with another piece of paper to form a circle; glue the two halves together at the ends and embellish the center with a button.
