Five Sustainable Wrapping Solutions for Eco-Friendly Gifts

newspaper gift bag tutorial from How about OrangeOr 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.

  1. I love these ideas. This year we picked up a bunch of baskets as two dollar grab bags, and for the rest, I am going to cut up paper shopping bags and use the blank side as the visible side of the paper. Some rubber stamps for decoration, a twine bow, and a tag from scrap cardstock should make a lovely gift!
