Potato Chip Bag Gift Wrap

I’m always on the hunt for cute and different ways to wrap gifts - After all, who doesn’t love getting a perfectly wrapped present!? I found some great metallic silver wrapping paper at the craft store, but it was so overpriced I just couldn’t justify buying it… So I decided to try this instead: Potato Chip Bag Gift Wrap! OK, I know it sounds kind of gross, but it actually works so well and looks absolutely adorable. Plus it’s super thrifty, and gives you an excuse to go buy a bag of chips (as if you needed one…)

- Empty potato chip bag with metallic inside
- Dish soap

1.  Cut your potato chip bag at the seams to get one flat piece & reveal the shiny insides
2.  Wash your bag with dish soap and water to remove grease, then lay flat to dry
3.  Wrap your gift and feel like a thrifty champ!

So easy and so cute, right?? This would look extra sweet in a Christmas theme with red ribbon and a little sprig of evergreen. It really is amazing what you can repurpose into something new and lovely!

Any other ideas on unusual gift-wrapping materials??
