I went to Goodwill and bought old posters and a big old Atlas and used that as wrapping paper and even made my own bows with it. It`s so nice wrapping with this thick paper that can be reused and recycled! It felt really good! And in case someone hasn`t seen this bow tutorial before, here`s a link: http://howaboutorange.blogspot.com/2009/10/make-gift-bow-from-magazine-page.html

OMG I love making bows from maps! They're the prettiest Cheesy Great job!

Your wrapping has really nice folds, btw. Do you use a bone-folder or whatsamacallit?

Once my craft room is put together I want to make some of these! I have a old graphic design catalog where you use to flip though the pages to pick out art work from various artists to comp up your work and sell to the customer. The book must weigh 20lbs and is full of thick juicy pages of colorfully art work. Perfect for a project like this! Does anyone know of a good web site to buy those glue dot from. I'm so addicted to them! I have have even wrapped gifts with them when I ran out of tape. I have found so many uses for them but need to buy them in bulk! LOL wonderful recycling and beutiful packaging!
