Recycled Gift Wrapping

A few days ago I was tasked by my husband to wrap his gift for Monito-Monita (Kris-Kringle).  What was challenging about the gift wrapping part was that we have to recycle materials from trash and not use gift wrapping paper.  This is what my gift wrapping challenge turned out to be.

I used Robinson's paper bags that was just lying around, reversed it and applied some basic gift wrapping skills and origami for the the star.

I decided to braid the ribbon for this gift and attach a star to add some flair.  A gift does not have to look drab just because its wrapped with a plain paper bag.  Overall, I was impressed with my work, and hubby was too.
