I often buy the weekend rag – and six weeks later it ends up in the recycle bin (why six weeks – it takes me that long to read it!) . When I saw this post, it married my desire to use the newspaper for something more than cleaning my windows (great for that by the way!) as well as my general dislike for all things related to mass manufactured gift wrapping. I don't per say dislike all gift wrapping/bagging – I love it when I am given a present wrapped in brown Ikea wrapping paper with a lovely note on the outside. That has the same home made, thoughtful feel to it!
A project to try over the summer maybe?
