Use newspaper to wrap your Christmas presents! 

Use newspaper to wrap your Christmas presents! 

Want to save money on wrapping paper this Christmas?

You need:

  • newspaper
  • scissors
  • tape


  1. Wrap your gift in newspaper.
  2. Cut several strips of newspaper about 15cm wide, some narrower.
  3. Fold one strip in half, length-ways and make a series of cuts along its fold.
  4. When you've cut the whole length, roll up the looped fringe and secure with tape.
  5. Fluff out the 'petals' of your newspaper flower and gather with the rest of your strips of paper.
  6. Join them with tape and leave the ends unstuck and attach the newspaper flower to your gift.
  7. Why not personalise your flowers - use a comic strips for kids, or recipe pages for a keen cook?
