SWR: Don't Throw Out Your Wrapping Paper From Gifts

I was searching through our own PW and found this.  It is very neat!!


1.  Framed art on your wall - Use a single pattern or combine multiple designs to create a larger wallscape.


2.  Personalize your coffee cup - Grab a reusable coffee cup that allows you to change the insert…talk about a morning pick me up?!?!


3.  Cover your books - Be the envy of your classmates or dress up an old coffee table book.


4.  Give new life to an old piece of furniture - Cover a tabletop or the inside of a bookshelf…use one design all over for a sophisticated look or smaller pieces in multiple designs for a real standout piece!


5.  Make drawer liners - Your socks will thank you!


6.  Picture frame matting - This looks especially great with a black and white photo.


7.  Cover a boring bulletin board - Change them out every month (or when you get too many poked holes)…your "To-Do List" just got more exciting!


8.  Shred it - Shred it or cut it up and use to protect packages instead of Styrofoam.


9.  Scrapbooking - Cut them up and use them as pages in your scrapbook.


10.  Wrap another gift - Use scraps as decorative accents on another gift in place of bows or ribbons!

I love these!!!


I use paper bags to cover my books, but the wrapping paper is prettier.

Great ideas! Sometimes it's so pretty that I feel bad about tearing into wrapping paper!
