To cut down on the waste of wrapping paper, try using materials such as paper grocery bags flipped inside out and decorated with soy ink stamps, or the comic page of a newspaper for kids. Other great wrapping materials include old maps, old calendars, sheet music and magazine ads. Another great wrapping idea is to enclose all your gifts in re-usable cotton mini shopping bags. You can customize them yourself, and the recipient can use them over and over again
