The moment after the presents have been unwrapped, reality sets in. You have a living room full of paper scraps that will undoubtedly end up in the garbage. Not this year! This year you can reuse those glittering pieces of paper to make your life more colorful and make you feel better about reusing that pretty paper. Forget the packing peanuts! Shredded wrapping paper makes for colorful packing material.
Make a beautiful bow for future presents using strips of recycled wrapping paper.
If the paper isn’t too seasonal, use it to bring life to otherwise drab drawers.
If you’re careful, you can always reuse paper for future gifts. Waste not, want not, right?
Use your favorite wrapping paper to make a fun garland! If you have metallic wrapping paper around, it would make the perfect garland for New Year’s Eve.
