Do you hate spending tons on money on gift wrapping papers? I do. I actually stopped buying wrapping papers for a while now. I use kraft papers, newspapers, construction papers, and regular white papers for gift wrapping and I constantly looking for ways to creatively decorate the gifts. Check out some of my gift wrapping posts here, here and here.
This time, I’m recycling plastic shopping bags. I love the gold polka dots on this H&M bag.
…so I cut it up and use it as I normally would papers.
It’s a little sheer but you wouldn’t have this problem if your gift box underneath was solid. I don’t really mind that you can almost see the writing on the box.
I added some baker twine and a gift tag and we’re good to go. Check out how I got the gift tags in this post.
Here is another gift wrapped with the other half of the bag. Some purple silk ribbon brighten it up a whole lot too!
Save money on wrapping papers this season!
