Use leftover wallpaper for wrapping paper for gifts. You can also use the leftover wallpaper for drawing paper for children's art projects as well.

Old leftover wallpaper makes great gift wrap! Stick a piece of old lace or ribbon around your gift and you've got one beautiful package. I'm an avid recycler, why waste that leftover wallpaper? Also, most thrift stores sell rolls of wallpaper for a fraction of what you'd pay for new gift wrap.

I like to pick-up remnants/rolls at yardsales/thrift stores. I use them as wrapping paper for presents.

Do not wet the whole piece. How do I know? I did that once. The paper had a plastic coating and left the box damp for several days. I gave it to them early to open. The paper is also a lot sturdier.
