Eco Friendly Newspaper Gift Wrapping

I really love wrapping presents in kraft paper.  I like the rustic look of the brown offset by doilies and frill.  The problem I found is that it's difficult for little hands to tear open in a Christmas morning frenzy!

We have a large pile of newspapers in the recycling bin, so I think that's the route I'm going to go this year.  I was no so thrilled with the idea, but found theses beautiful examples on Pinterest.  I'm sold now.

I love the pops of color on these.  They would be fun for the kids with felt hair clips, flowers or bows!
