Day 2 of 12 Days of Eco-Christmas: Inside-out wrapping paper

It's Day 2 of 12 Days of Eco-Christmas and Natalie of Almost Never Clever wrapped up something special just for you! Check out her beautiful inside-out wrapping paper...

Inside Out Wrapping Paper

This project has been hiding in your house and you didn't even know it.

I love this because it's a really easy way to get a new look under your Christmas tree. My ulterior motive here was to use up this Santa wrapping paper that has been in our stash for years.

Just Two Steps. Really.


Two steps: Find the right wrapping paper and wrap the gift. It's that simple. You can use any wrapping paper as long as it's plain white on the reverse.

Inside Out Wrapping Paper

Roll out the paper and wrap the gift so the pattern is on the inside.

That's it! Just add ribbon and you're done.

I've been doing silver ribbon with these, but I'm sure some bright colored ribbon would pop nicely.
