I vow to never buy wrapping paper again

Christmas has been and gone, and we had a wonderful time. But what I hate to see is the huge pile of wrapping paper and other non-reusable (well not after little fingers have ripped through it all) gift wrapping things that are left over.

I’ve decided that I will no longer purchase wrapping paper, cards, tags or labels to wrap gifts. I will blog my efforts and I encourage you to join me. Help me cut down on all the crap heading into our landfills.

Luckily for me, I’m not the only one who thinks this way and there is loads of inspiration around the place. Cue Pinterest:

I  can’t wait to give some of these a go. I have a few birthdays coming up so I’ll get a chance pretty soon.

Has anyone got any alternative gift wrapping ideas? I think I’m good for embellishments but there is probably only so many gifts I can wrap in newspaper so I could do with some more ideas there.
