This instructable shows how you can save the environment by reusing old (but cute) newspapers, magazine articles, and more!

Step 1: Materials

What you will Need:

Your Gift
Any type of magazine article (I used this), newspaper, map, etc.

Step 2: Step 1

Picture of Step 1

Place your gift onto your wrapping paper.  Take one of the longer sides of the paper and fold it over the gift.  If there is left over paper, trim it off.  Repeat with other side of the paper.

Step 3: Step 2

Your next step is to do the sides.  If there is extra paper hanging off the sides, trim it off until when you fold down the paper, it doesn't touch the ground.  I had to trim off some of the paper.  If you don't understand this step, look at the pictures shown. Make sure to tape it down tight.  Repeat with the other side of the gift.

Step 4: Step 3

Picture of Step 3

When you are done trimming, take one of the edges and fold it (picture shows how to do it).  Tape the top of the edge (the one that isn't touching the ground).  Repeat with the other side. 

Step 5: Step 4

Picture of Step 4

Take the tip of the paper and fold it against the gift.  Tape the top of it.  Then you are done! :)
