Newspaper + cereal box = recycled gift bag
Moogsmum has posted a few links to some pretty crafty recycled paper Christmas crafts. Among the ideas listed is this super-smart gift bag tutorial made from your breakfast routine basics. With a few well chosen newspaper pages, a cereal box, string or ribbon and some glue you can put together a sturdy, environmentally friendly, virtually free gift bag. Oh how it hurts plopping down four bucks for a gift bag. Already coming to mind is how my kids can get in on the action by customizing these clever bags with some festive potato prints and handprint Santas. And since we celebrate Hanukkah as well the kids might need to make a few bags with Star of David prints made from a Toblerone box. Loves me the Toblerone. With all the money you'll be saving not purchasing gift bags you can splurge on a box of the good stuff.
