Map Wrapping Paper!
This Instructable is so simple that I thought twice about posting it!
Though it is so effective and I don't know anyone else who does it. It costs no money and reuses something that would be thrown away, its worth it for that.
I hope by sharing this Instructable that you may give it a go.

Step 1: Get an Old Map
Get an old map and use it to wrap up a present!
Simple though very effective. Maps are so wonderfully graphical and seeing them in an unusual situation as the wrapping for a present makes the present more surprising.
I have been using an old road map that was out of date and had a number of key pages missing, we all have them kicking around in the car foot well some place.
I have worked my way up the UK over the past couple years and am now in Scotland. Such a beautiful country and one that I was very fortunate to live in for a few years.
Okay here we go....tear it out, trim the ragged edge and wrap up your present and you are done!
Please give it a go, works nearly as well with newspaper and magazines.
