Make your own wrapping paper.
"I like to scan or photocopy pretty patterned fabrics and print them on 11" x 17" sheets, which is just the right size to wrap small gifts and stocking stuffers (yes, I wrap stocking stuffers)," says H&H design editor Margot Austin. "It's best to do this with vintage fabrics so as not to reproduce designs protected by copyright. With paper this pretty I keep embellishment to a minimum. A few sprigs of evergreen and green jute twine finish the presentation."
