Making a Christmas Gift Bag
I found a brown paper bag with Pier One written in the middle on both sides. It was a nice bag with handles, though, so I thought I would decorate it. I didn't have stamps, and that wouldn't solve the problem of the name. Since I had a box of paper to be recycled sitting out for tomorrow's pick up, I decided to look through it. I had several catalogs from places like Harry & David and The Popcorn Factory. They were full of great Christmas pictures. I sat down and started cutting and gluing and ended up with the pictures you see. The kids and I both thought it turned out pretty well.
I saved the wrapping paper and used something I had on hand. What resourceful means have you used to wrap gifts this season?

I use to have my kids colour the bags or decorate them, but now they are too old for it to be "cue". LOL
I love your idea!
