Wrapping Paper and Bow Made from Packaging Items - wrapped giftIf you are an online shopper, some companies send a lot of packaging items (i.e.: filling, bubblewrap, tissue paper, etc.) and I keep them because they can be useful like for making your own wrapping paper. I didn't have any wrapping paper besides Christmas theme, so I came up with this using kraft paper and a bow made from tissue paper from Victoria's Secret.
