You can use whatever materials you have at hand (Magazines, newspapers, shoe boxes, gift paper, store bags, or anything else that you think is pretty and would make a good wrapper)
Box (shoe box or whatever size box you need that will fit your objects)

First, cut out pictures or pages from magazines and paste or tape them to your box, trying to cover the entire outside of the box.

Next, wrap your presents using either magazine paper or the tissue paper that you sometimes receive when you buy from certain stores. OR you can also use the tissue paper to line the box once you are done decorating it.

And its that simple! A very original way to give gifts as well as a fun/unique way to decorate storage boxes in your own home. Also, you can add a flower or a bow to the box when you are done.
