I like to recycle as much as possible and I love, LOVE to pinch a penny (They so cute.) ! Here are some of the patterns I painted this Christmas for wrapping paper. All you have to do is use your brown paper shopping sacks. Cut out the bottom so you can then cut up the seam, and they will lie flat for you to paint. If you are really set on making it as fancy as possible, you can hit them with a hot iron and they will look like you bought them (where? I have no idea). I love this, as it has a lovely finished look when all is done. People feel special to have hand painted gift wrapped presents AND you save money. WIN, WIN, WIN!
