Last Minute Gift Wrapping Tip


Finally finished shopping--now to wrap the gifts. Here is my suggestion for a green Christmas.I am wrapping individual gift (gifts) in Lawrence Journal World newspapers and placing them in shopper bags available at supermarkets. Several days ago, HyVee had Holiday bags in red, green and blue for $1 each. I am hoping to use a wood burning tool to make little wood labels for each but there are many possibilities of ways to identify the bags.We will arrive at our Christmas celebration with ten shopper bags in hand, ready for grocery shopping another day. The wrapping will go back into the recycle pile.Merry Christmas!

That's a great idea, Linda, re: the reusable, cloth grocery bags. I just used some from World Market as gift bags earlier this week. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Way to go, Linda. Now if you could only change the mindset of my relatives...we'd be that much closer to a sustainable planet. Happy Holidays!

Multi--what a great idea! I know JoAnns and Hancocks are having sales. Definitely going to try at least a few of these sacks.

Hey! Now I know what to do with all my scrap fabric for NEXT year...and birthdays, and anniversaries... Seeing the amount of trash generated by holiday wrappings set out to the curb each year just makes my stomach churn. Great ideas!
