I have used cloth gift bags for about 10 years now. (My sewing skills are only home ec 101, so anyone with a sewing machine can do the same.) I cut out interesting images from the front of Christmas cards for next year's gift tags by punching a hole in it & threading the ribbon through it before tying the bag. (I'm the first to admit this method is not a good one for households with small children who would be too tempted to peek!) Today I read a couple great ideas. The first is using leftover wallpaper for gift wrapping. The other was to run used gift wrap through a paper shredder & use it instead of tissue paper. (I personally have a box for saving tissue paper I receive. You can take a dry iron to wrinkled tissue paper & it will look great.) I just hate taking my trash to the dump right after Christmas & seeing the dumpster bulging with discarded gift wrap! Thais Carr
