Or maybe you just need a one-size-fits-all sort of sustainable wrapping solution. Do what everyone else does–use a gift bag! This recycled gift bag tutorial from How about Orange uses newspaper–to mix yours up a bit, use a foreign-language newspaper, or give the outside of your bags a quick hit of spray paint to add some festive color.
It’s the details that can really make recycled wrapping look nice, so don’t skimp out on the tidy grommets and twine handles on these gift bags.
