Since I found some pretty great ideas, I thought I'd share them with you and hopefully inspire you to recycle/upcycle and get creative!
Use a sewing pattern to wrap your boxes! They also make fabulous bows or would be ideal as a substitute for tissue paper.
Jazz up a brown paper bag. The scalloped edge is such a sweet detail.
I love this idea! I'm always coming across beautiful silk scarves but I so rarely wear them. Now I can pick them up and keep them on hand for wrapping. Bonus.... a little extra gift for your loved one.
Using a doily to wrap a Christmas gift is pretty apres pos for this time of year since they look so much like snow flakes. This would look great with red and green accents.
Now that I have all these great ideas, I know what I'll be doing tonight!!
