I stumbled across this book at the library.  It is full of lovely ideas on creative ways to wrap gifts.  As you know, partly due to my laziness and partly due to my frugality, I rarely have lovely wrapping paper in the house.  The author does a great job of presenting his ideas.  So much so, that I was inspired to try some this past Christmas.

So I saved some potato chip and “blue Doritos” bags, washed them, let them air dry and used them, inside-out.  (It did not require a lot of soapy water, surprisingly.  I washed them when I had some other hand-washing to do.)  I think the result is lovely!  (The bow was a “re-use.”)
