While making gift bags for the local nursing home, I realized I had a lot of tissue paper from events past. All the pretty colors and patterns, I couldn't bear to throw it away so I flattened it out and decided to iron it. Worked like a charm.
Take 3 sheets of tissue paper put them together put iron on polyester with a tad of steam. Iron on both sides. The one in the middle will be perfect too. Fold it accordion style and bingo: recycled tissue. When you think of how much of this stuff goes to the land fill every year, this is a good way to recycle.

Here are questions related to Reusing Tissue Paper.
I reuse it if it's not too wrinkled. I sometimes use it to fill the bottom of the bag where it won't be noticed. Also, I like to make gift baskets and run the wrinkled paper through the shredder (one that makes strips and not confetti) and use it in the baskets. Makes a colorful basket and uses the older paper too so it doesn't go to waste.
