Recycle Gift Wrap

Now that the gift giving Holidays are over, considering saving some used gift wrap and and ribbon to repurpose for the future. I love wrapping gifts with recycled gift wrap and reused items…I think it makes them more stylish and interesting.

Here’s how to refresh crumpled gift wrap or ribbon

  • Wrapping paper and tissue can be lightly ironed on the lowest setting on wrong side of the paper to eliminate wrinkles. Do not iron over tape or paper that has glitter or plastic embellishments.
  • Curling ribbon can be re-curled using the edge of scissors to remove creases or kinks caused by being tied or crushed.
  • Smooth out wrapping paper and ribbon and wind the pieces around a leftover wrapping paper or paper towel tubes for easy storage and to keep it from creasing.

Here are just a few of my gift wrap designs and cards I made from reused wrapping paper and tissue.
