You can use old record sleeves to mail flat items in.  Other great ideas is to reuse any box you have at home like a cereal box.  Another awesome item to use is paper bags.  You can cut them up to create your own envelope.


Another great way to wrap your items or gifts is with old patterns.  They are so cute when you do this and you can use all those patterns that you have lost pieces to over the years.  Comics and newspapers are also a great way to wrap presents.

Have fun finding new recycled ways to ship your items in or mail your gifts to people.

    My brother wrapped gifts in Nautical Maps one year. My son loved trying to put them together afterwards. He got the discarded maps from the library when they upgraded.
