5 Creative Gift Wrapping Ideas from the Mailbox

Did you know that free materials for creative gift wrapping are being delivered to your home on a weekly (if not daily) basis? They are! Here are 5 ideas for using the contents of your mailbox for gift wrapping:

1) Use a catalog page for wrapping paper.
2) Pleat prize ribbon gift toppers out of security envelopes.
3) Improvise gift wrap from newspaper.
4) Turn an envelope into a mini gift bag.
5) Cut all-occasion gift tags from greeting cards (pictured above).

I hate wasting good design and find so much pleasure in giving pretty papers a second life. What about you? Have you ever dug through the recycling bin to wrap a gift?

  1. I do something similar to this whenever I'm giving something like giftcards, or jewelry. One time my grandma thought that the bag I gave her was her entire gift....goes to show how much she appreciated the wrapping haha!
