Keeping the Wrapping Green 2010

Two years ago, I began wrapping my Christmas presents in eco-friendly ways.  I’m in the process of wrapping this year’s gifts, but in the meantime, I thought I’d repost some of the presents I wrapped the last couple years.

So here is 2010:

Target bags turned out to be one of my favorite wrapping papers.  Perfect colors!

And those cards with the bird (which say “Peace out… have a hip holiday!”) – Yes.  I really did already own those (not sure where they came from, but they were in that bin of crafty stuff from college!)

Trader Joe’s bags also make great wrapping paper (inside out or right side out).

I had some really pretty paper (also in the “crafty-stuff-from-college bin”)

And here’s what might be my favorite.  I learned how to make these flowers over on Two Shades of Pink and although mine aren’t quite as beautiful as hers, I kind of love them.

(If you want to see Two Shades of Pink’s versions or learn how to make them yourself, click here.)

And there you have it: the 2010 Christmas gifts.  I must confess this year’s gifts aren’t turning out quite as creative so far.  But I do still have the “Hip Holiday” cards.  I may have to use a few of those!

What creative gift-wrapping ideas do you have?
