Inexpensive Gift Wrap

   Looking for an inexpensive way to wrap gifts? Pick up an end roll from your local newspaper office! They are often free and even where there is a charge it is usually only a few dollars for a good bit of paper! You can either give your children creative license to decorate the paper with crayons or whatever other craft supplies you have on hand, which makes the paper more special anyway, or you can tie the paper with raffia or even regular string to give it an old-fashioned look. And, best of all, you only have to store one roll of paper because your end roll can be used for any holiday from Father's Day to Christmas!
