Recycled Magazine Gift Wrap

Before you toss your magazines into the recycled bin, cut out thoughtful words to create a custom message attached to your gift wrap. Hand torn strips of paper create an artistic touch to the gift. Strips of paper are cut to make a paper ribbon strip and bow. I glued extra buttons onto the center of the bow for an extra touch. This gift is wrapped with a white shopping bag leftover from the holidays but the white back side of reused wrapping paper can also be used.

Not only will this gift wrap WOW your recipient – it can be created with items you have on hand.
