Introduction: Comics Wrapping Paper

Picture of Comics Wrapping Paper

If you are like me, you have tons of newspapers just lying around waiting to be recycled.  So, I have decided to use the comic sectgion for wrapping paper.  It took two pages and 1 sheet for the gift I had.  I put the paper down with the gift on top, put the second page over the gift, and then taped them together.  Then I folded one side like a regular present and used the strip for the second side.  I then used the margin as the tag and wrote the name here.

Materials:
Gift to be wrapped
Newspaper Comics
Tape
Scissors (opt if need a strip)

Hey that's a good idea. I'm fond of using old road maps.

road maps might work better since they are bigger, but with GPS's I don't have any anymore.

I came across a collection of national geographic. That's all the maps of the world. Its a work in progress. I can add some more photos to my Flickr page.
