Cheap Wrapping Paper and Bows

Create your own wrapping paper, which is not only unique, but
also fun. Use plain brown grocery bags and craft-like paints to
make your design.
After wrapping the gift, let your creative juices flow. For example,
using black and yellow craft paint, create a miniature road. Then
dipping toy truck tires into red paint roll them along the paper
making tire tracks.
You can then draw free hand a stop sign, yield sign, or stop light.
Next, using a hot glue gun, glue a couple of the miniature trucks
to the paper. This is perfect for a young boy. He will be just as
thrilled with the wrapping as the actual gift.
For a girl, you can simply create miniature bows from existing
fabric or lace and glue them on brown paper then free hand draw
colorful flowers. Just use your creativity and look around for
items you already have on hand to use.
