  1. often we would use the funny papers from the sunday papers to wrap birthday presents

  2. Funny papers yes, we did the same while I was growing up. Junk mail however, I don’t think I could bring myself to give a gift wrapped up in that lol.

  3. Never tried junk mail but all those Sunday papers are great for wrapping. Just add a little ribbon of wrapping paper for decoration or decorate with a ribbon or bow
