It is so close to Christmas and I have not wrapped all of my gifts yet. Most of the people I know wait until Christmas Eve to wrap and realize they ran out of paper or don’t want to wrap gifts in the same paper from last year. One thing I like to do is use household and recycled items to create beautiful gifts. Using things you already have can create inexpensive and unique gift wrap designs. Reusing is also great if you don’t feel like fighting the crowds just to get wrapping paper.
Here are some of my ideas for reusing what you already have to create elegant and unique gifts.
Reused Tissue Wrap
You can use worn tissue paper and wrapping paper scraps to make beautiful gift wrap and gift bags. Wrap a gift in double layered tissue paper that has been crumpled into a ball and smoothed out so it has a uniform wrinkled look. Use small pieces of reused or leftover paper and ribbon to create ornament shapes to embellish the top of the gift.
