With so much information readily available to us through technology, newspapers seem to be a publication that is slowly taking a backseat. Our dad still enjoys getting the paper and we rifle through the coupons for anything that looks like a good deal, but mostly it’s glanced at and then off to be recycled. We decided we would grab a few sections and do our own recycling. We first got this idea a few months back when we had a few family members celebrating multiple birthday’s around the same time. Those decorative wine bags can be pricy and just handing someone a bottle of wine (although no one would really refuse it) just doesn’t have much of that gift sentiment to us.
So here’s a creative wrapping idea for your next wine bottle gift. We used an article from the newspaper that was published on the date of their birthday. We stuck to the comic section, home and leisure, sports, and entertainment. We then wrapped the bottle with the paper and added a decorative bow. Not only did we recycle the paper but now they have a section from the paper that is dated on their birthday.
