I had the gift, the thing in which to pack it, and an idea. So I headed to the local thrift store and scored a cheap encyclopedia.
My materials (also not pictured is a paper shredder and scissors)...
Place piece (or a few more depending on how many your shredder can handle at once) into the shredder. (If you want to be able read the words like I mentioned before place the paper in the shredder as shown below.)
Make sure shredder is turned to the "off" position, and remove shredded paper.
Stuff your gift box, or jar in my case, with shredded paper and gift. I hid my gift amidst the shredded paper since the jar is clear.
Put on the lid and ta-da! Finished Product.
