Wrapping paper is not green

This is the time of year that I remind y'all to forego Christmas wrapping paper and "go fabric."

I made these gift bags from discounted Christmas theme fabric nearly 40 years ago and they are still in use by MANY family members. Kids (and husbands) like them because they make wrapping gifts simple, especially weird shaped items.

So after the holidays, pick up some vastly discounted fabric and get out your sewing machines. If you don't have one, ask someone who does to help you make some gift bags. Some crafty websites offer them for big bucks, but you can make your own quite easily.

Note that the gift tags are recycled Christmas card fronts.
