Magazine Wrapped Gifts
A few blog posts back, I talked about taking a sheet in a magazine—-like a fancy fashion advertisement—and recycling it into curly magazine ribbons as gift toppers on presents.
I thought..why not recycle the magazine itself and wrap gifts with it?
Here are a few presents wrapped with full pages from glossy magazines and a few gifts wrapped with other found objects around the house: maps, brochures, color copy pages and even an oversized instructional manual. I’ve used blueprint paper in the past, which I found in a giant paper recycling center, but I’ve used it all up. So, until I score another roll of blueprint paper, this might have to do this for this upcoming holiday season.
When matched with a nice ribbon (all cut extra long so the recipient can reuse the ribbon easily on other gifts), it all looks kinda nice!
