Save money this holiday season by creating your own gift wrapping materials. This can be a do-it-yourself project, or you can let your kids in on the fun, too.
One idea is to put your hands in finger paint, then place them on white craft paper, creating a fun, unique pattern for your wrapping paper.
You can also make your own gift tags. First, cut shapes of mittens out of construction paper, then stitch them together using a sewing machine. Complete the project by punching a hole through the bottom of the mittens and tying a ribbon.
Put the finishing touches on your gift by tying on a bow made from household items such as yarn, rickrack or thread.
