Instead of using wrapping paper, which in most cases cannot be recycled, why not invest in using fabric gift wrap. These wraps are made of 100% cotton flannel fabric and they also come in medium and large. You can use it over and over again and decide your own way to wrap your gift without the use of scissors, tape or ribbon. One simple way is to place your gift in the middle of the fabric on a diagonal. Fold the top and bottom corners over the item. Take up the other two corners, folding over the gift and tie them in a knot. The knot becomes your bow and you have a beautiful gift to present!
