Reusing Wrapping Paper

You get a gift that is wrapped with beautiful paper or a beautifully decorated gift bag with lovely tissue paper and you would like to save and reuse the gift paper or the tissue paper, but it's all crumpled and creased.

Well here's a way to make it look practically like new again. IRON IT!

Yes, ironing with a Medium hot iron and steam will take almost all the wrinkles and creases out and make it reusable. CAUTION: Keep the iron moving on the paper or it will burn.

That is so true. Only someone who has gone through the depression and hard times would know this.

Our family calls it preloved with extra hugs. We use all sorts of crumpled paper with a pretty bow so the person knows we picked the gift with care and we hugged it before we sent it.

I saved all the wrapping paper this year for packaging material--works better than newspaper since it doesn't lose its ink. Even used it to pack some Christmas decorations away.

I have always saved Sunday comics for use as wrapping paper, I think they look quite fun.

I have been trying for the last few years to use fabric instead of paper to wrap presents. Fabric comes in amazing and beautiful variety. This truly can be ironed and re-used for years and years. If everyone in the family would do this, the familiar patterns would come around each year and add to the traditional joy of christmas. IMHO.
