Gift Wrap Ideas
When it comes to
gift wrap, it can be $3 to $5 for every package or roll of
gift wrap, and usually since you buy it especially for the
specific birthday or event, it can be a while before you can
use up the leftovers, if the small amount of wrapping paper
in the packages was enough in the first place.
are a few ways you can do gift wrapping on a budget.
Your children likely bring artwork projects home from school,
and they end up cluttering the house or taking up a box or
drawer somewhere. And often, some of these art projects use
oversized paper. So select a piece of artwork appropriate
to the gift and recipient, and use it for wrapping paper.
And your child will be so proud to have his or her artwork
ends: Keep newsprint rollends on hand. When you need to wrap,
give an appropriate sized piece to your kids, and allow them
to finger paint or stamp on the paper. Allow to dry, and wrap!
These ideas are
a great way to let your children be creative, while putting
their art skills to good use... all while saving you money!
