Easy Ideas for Wrapping Gifts in Newspaper or Kraft Paper

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 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.
