I took a standard paper grocery bag, ripped off the bottom and tore it in half lengthwise to fit in the shredder.
Here is a nice little nest for my fragile gift. I actually love the look of this. It's so much better than those green static-filled packing peanuts.
One of my paper bags had a cute little tree printed on it. I decided to use this one to wrap my niece's gift. I just know she is going to love it. I got goosebumps when I found this little gem for her. Maybe I'll post about it later...after I get the package to her.
I have a certain package that's late as it can be;
It sits upon my table right where all can see.
I need to send it soon, for the birthdays are all past.
These gifts won't be the first they get, most likely they'll be last.
Thank you for enduring my sad attempt at poetry. I'm pretty sure my iambic pentameter is off. Anyway, I hope the paper bag tip will help you get your packages out on time. ;-)
