(I supposed to share this before Christmas, might be more useful for you. I was to busy preparing all things for travelling to Indonesia. So, my apologize...)
What you need is newspaper (best pages is advertising pages. If you could find ad pages with all black and white printed, that is great!)
And tissue paper, or some see-through wrapping paper (usually quite cheap in price), and ribbon or anything you want to decorating your gift.
Here, I mixed between the ad paper, pink tissue paper and chocolate brown ribbon (pink and chocolate brown goes well, pink and soft baby green goes perfect alternatively).
- Wrap your gift with ad paper, in normal way.
- Wrap over the tissue paper.
- Tie the ribbon as desired
