Save your wrapping paper…

Do as Granny says “Save that paper darlin’!”

Tomorrow morning as you tear into those gifts be sure to collect and save the paper! Trust me! It will come in handy if you consider it as Crafting Supplies! It’s also a wonderful
way to reuse a useful item!

As a kid my brother and sister and I used to make Confetti out of our wrapping paper to use New Years Eve!

It will make for wonderful backgrounds in card making and other fun paper crafts! So grab it, store it and pull it out next time you need a little splash of color!

    what a great idea! i decided this year that i'm not buying a single piece of wrapping paper and only using newspaper & brown paper bags. of course i still have to buy wonderful grosgrain ribbon but hopefully the recipients will "reuse" that! but when the boys get presents from others we'll save all those colorful pieces too and do fun things with them. merry christmas! i'm so glad i found your blog a few weeks ago. i've enjoyed many ideas!

    What a great idea! I would never have thought to save the wrapping paper for my crafts. But so much beautiful paper does end up in the trash and we are really trying to be better about not wasting around here at the cottage home. Thanks for the tip!

    I was thinking today as I was wrapping presents that I hated to throw away this pretty paper. I rescued some boxes from work and I'm going to cover them with the wrapping paper and use them to store my photos!!!
