Mexi-Style with Anjelica (@la_anjel now also on craftythrifter)
So if you read Day 6 of the 12 Gift Wrapping Days of Christmas and thought “that’s way too much work,” this post is especially for you.  Consider this the cheat sheet to recycling newspaper as gift wrap for your Christmas presents.  It will look just as great as the handmade gift bag and your friends and family will praise you just as much for your awesome creativity.  Have fun with this project!

You’ll want to make the same sealant as in Day 6 so that the ink on the paper does not run. You don’t want your gift receiver to get ink residue on their hands when they open their gifts.
