Brown paper packages tied with a bow!

Looking for a chic and cheap way to wrap presents?  After 10 years of traveling for the holidays I have given up on cheap wrapping paper and fancy bows.  A much more functional and travel-freindly option…

Use Kraft paper or better yet, paper bags, instead of wrapping paper.  I used a different type of ribbon or string for each.  Above is an example of a “boy” exchange gift for our extended family Christmas.  I actually used a fabric scrap for this simple little ribbon.
