I have an abundance of packaging paper that I receive and save from my online purchases.
One great way to re-use the packaging paper is to make my own gift wrapping paper. I personally do not believe in purchasing gift wrap paper at full price because it is going in the trash afterwards. When I do receive presents with gift wrap paper, I try my best to rip as little as possible so I can reuse the wrapping paper.
This is a simple and easy way to create your own gift wrapping paper with everyday essentials that we have at home. If you do not want circles, you can cut shapes or the pattern you like from cardboard and use that as your stamp.
This is perfect, especially for wrapping irregular shapes, adding your own personal touch to a gift and overall, it's fun, easy, and one of a kind, not to mention thoughtful too!
Brilliant idea! Thanks a bunch for posting this (I really hate throwing out all that paper and am delighted to find a way to use it). Thinking about ways to decorate that paper? No end, really. Sparkle nail polish, judicious use of spray paint over paper doilies or snowflakes, washi tape, stickers / decals .... What fun it will be to individualize things for gift recipients.
