No need to spend a ton of money on gift bags, boxes, wrapping paper, and bows. Just use items around your house. I always have a stack of magazines and catalogs laying around. I like to make my cards as well. My Dad saves all the cards we make him.
SO take out your scissors, glue, cardstock, tape, magazines, old posters, brown paper bags, pens, stamps, pencils and markers and get creative. Invite your friends over and have a gift wrapping party!
one year i wrapped all my presents in brown paper packages and another year I used old surf magazines....
i love the way it looks under the tree:)
