As a paper crafter, we all have tons of pretty papers and embellishments at home already. So why not pull out our crafting supplies and try wrapping gifts in newspaper
For this holiday season, instead of buying rolls and rolls of gift wrapping paper, try recycled craft using that you already have at home to decorate those gifts.
wrapping Gifts in newspaper
For a simple, yet pretty gift, use recycle old newspaper to cover your entire box. Then punch a couple of shapes from patterned papers and layer them over a paper doily. As a finishing touch, tie a piece of yarn or twine around the box.
If you need to decorate lots of boxes quickly, try this idea. Punch lots of scallops or circles from some old newspaper.
You can easily punch four to five sheets of newspaper at once. Then machine stitch these shapes to form a long garland.
Wrap this garland around the box two or three times for a pretty shabby chic look!
You can also reuse satin ribbon or lace to add something special to your kraft paper package.
Easily replace patterned papers with newspaper to create a unique look that is so interesting! You will also be reusing newspapers instead of throwing them.
