Does anyone know where to order recycled or tree free wrapping paper? I want to be eco-friendly this Christmas but I just can’t do the newspaper thing.

I also don’t want to spend a fortune on fancy paper. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

    ok, my DIY idea is to use brown paper bags, the ones you get from whole foods, IF you were my husband and forgot to bring your shopping bags every time you go to the store, ahem. (although i don’t complain, he does the shopping and since i loathe that chore, at least he’s not taking plastic.)

    anyway, turn the bag inside out because then it’s pure brown and you can have the girls decorate the outside – hours of fun, giving mama a break, with stickers, stamps, etc.

    Use Kristen’s idea; any paper, let kids decorate it…re-use wrapping paper from gifts given to your family all year…or don’t wrap gifts; put bow and gift card on them…How would you wrap a car?

    Hi! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this page to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
