Uses For Leftover Christmas Paper

Old Christmas wrapping paper makes great pattern paper! If you make your own sewing patterns or make duplicate patterns or revisions to patterns like I do, use your old Christmas wrapping paper or Christmas tissue paper, it makes great patterns!


You can also turn over Christmas wrapping paper and let kids use the blank side to color or paint on.

When buying Christmas paper during the holidays, I try to find colors that I can use the rest of the year for gifts and other holidays like Gold, Silver, Copper, Purple, Blue, and Checked or Stars. Gold and silver makes great wedding and anniversary wrapping paper while Blue, Purple, Checks and Stars makes great Birthday paper.

Use Gold Christmas Paper to "gold leaf" your crafts and projects with.

Good ideas. Only caveat: Be careful about colors in paper bleeding onto fabric. Some papers are bad about that; even a small amount, such as perspiration, can ruin the fabric. To ensure safety, use the paper pattern (color) side up when pinning to fabric.

I run it through the paper shredder to stuff gift bags and baskets. You can also mix it with packing material to look more festive if you have to ship something.
