I finally came up with a use for old phonebooks!  Wrapping Paper and bows!  Here I wrapped a cd in the phonebook paper (the white pages section with all the phone numbers of people).  Then I made a bow (from the coupon section because it was colorful) using a slightly altered version of a folded paper pinwheel.  Then I went through my felt scraps and found some scraps to add to the bow for a different texture and a pop of color.  My mom (the receiver of this fabulously wrapped gift) LOVED the idea!  What an awesome way to recycle!  Go me!  Yeah!   Grin

Hey, why not! We get so many phone books a year, it's like a constant source of wrapping paper.  Cheesy Good idea. I think the bow really makes it.

Very nice.  I like it a lot- classy!

Awesome!  I suggested a challenge for using phone books and this was just the type of thing I was thinking of!

The gift wrap it's lovely. The bow and the felt details are awesome. I must try this  Wink

When looking at the entries for this challenge, I was looking for ideas that I could easily replicate. This is the one for me!

Thrifty- free phone books (I get at least 2 delivered a year from different places).


Stylish- the amazing bow from the colored section and the addition of the colored felt really looks sharp against the black and white of the wrapping.

I also love how it isn't holiday specific!

Now, if I can figure out a decent way to connect pages together to make large sheets, I can use it for even more gifts! Or, I'll just have to give small-sized gifts Wink

The choices you make today determine the choices you will have tomorrow.
