I wanted to save money on Christmas wrapping paper. I started saving the Sunday comics to wrap children's gifts. However, when I went to use the comics, they had faded and are not pretty any more. How could I keep the colorful comics from fading?

When done reading the Sunday newspaper funnies, I put them with my gift wrapping supplies. For children's gifts instead of using tissue paper to make the ornate gift bag spray, I use the comics with a solid color bag. It's not only very colorful, but "green" and free!

I've always done that, the kids love it. (02/17/2010)
Great idea, and not just for the kids! (02/19/2010)
