Holiday DIY brown paper wrapping! - M Loves M @marmar

I was reading the other day that craft wrapping paper is more sustainable and recycles easier than normal wrapping paper. I happen to love the look of craft paper, so the fact that it is better for the environment is really the icing on the cake. Not to mention, it is super affordable! One of the reasons I love craft wrapping paper is that it is so easy to keep on hand for literally any gift. Holiday, birthday, anniversary, wedding, baby showers, whatever you want! It is super easy to DIY unique craft paper wrapping paper looks, so I rounded up ten of my favorite ideas here and below!
