Oooh, all the nifty and thrifty things you can create from old newspaper! This time I decided to weave them into a little basket. It turned out to actually be pretty sturdy, despite the flimsy newspaper pages.
Use lace from an old table runner as gift wrap. Wrap your gift in craft paper. Cut a piece of lace to fit all the way around. Fasten it on the back with a hot glue gun. Tie a piece of string around gift -- you're all set!
