Use Newspaper and Maps to Wrap Boxes
Leftover paper of all kinds―wallpaper, old maps, last week's Sunday comics―begs to be recycled as gift wrap. Use a copy machine's enlarger function to make much of small things. Choose a dictionary definition to suit the occasion: love for Valentine's Day, shamrock for Saint Patrick's Day, ageless for an anxious friend's birthday. Photocopy the page onto an 11-by-17-inch sheet of paper (if possible) at the highest magnification, repeat as needed to increase the word size, and squeeze in the choice part of the definition.
