Surprise Gift Wrapping Paper

Do you love giving gifts but hate the wastefulness of single-use wrapping paper?

Does your family hate it when you save old wrapping paper and complain you ruin their joy of carelessly tearing it off?

We've got the perfect solution for you: cold bags

Most zero wasters have a stash of old, clean cold bags just waiting for someone to put them to good use. Surprise. That someone is you!

Cold bags make super impressive wrapping paper, and the padding adds an extra touch of delight that will put a smile on the recipients face.

The material used in cold bags is stiff, so it will require more durable tape than what you would use for paper. You can find decorative duct tape at stores like Daiso or stationary shops. 

Just make sure the bag is clean and has not come into direct contact with food.
