Emily, I remember my grandma saving all of her wrapping paper to reuse the next year! I think that some of the papers that I have seen would be pretty enough to frame or cover with clear laminate and make placemats from it. I had paper that had country looking angels on it, I cut out the angels and used a glue stick to apply them to white cardstock and made cards for the next Christmas. I also reuse cards by cutting them into gift tags or cutting out the pictures on the front and glue them to cardstock to make new cards. You could use the paper for decoupage and cover just about anything like boxes, paper lamp shades, or book covers. I used wrapping paper in my living room to cover all the pictures on my walls and tied them with pretty bows so they all looked like presents. I don't decorate too much at Christmas, so the presents on the wall really looked festive!

Run thru a paper shredder and use it in the bottom of gift baskets next year.
