Recycle! Yay Christmas.

Have you ever wrapped presents in newspaper? 

   My gosh I have sooo much newspaper I'm amazed I never thought to do this. I think it's creative and cheap. Love that combo.

  • I don't get the newspaper, but if I did I might use the comic section to wrap stuff with.

  • Yeah but the ribbons are the only thing that makes it look legit lol. If I used newspaper it would turn out looking half as cute as it does in that picture!!!

  • The cynical side of me says to use 80 lbs of Black Friday circulars so they appreciate what it took to get the stuff in the boxes

  • Have't used it yet, but I have reused actual wrapping paper. You know, the shiney kind with two colored sides? Yeah, that.
