Simple Tassel Bow Gift TopperThe only rolls of wrapping paper I have in our household are Christmas themed and it's from years and years ago! I no longer purchase wrapping paper because it's a waste of money. There are other methods for wrapping gifts and gift giving.

You can recycle a paper bag for this wrapped gift. Plus you can use the scraps to create a bow and tassels as a gift topper. This project only cost 10 cents (for the paper bag) and items I am sure you already have at home!

Total Time: 30 minutes
