Now that the holidays are over, and you are putting things away…what to do with the leftover wrapping paper?
I always seem to have end pieces that are not really enough to save for next year. I usually buy coordinating papers, like the photo shown above. Here are some ideas for fun DIY projects that you can do or save for a rainy day kids project.
How about covering books with them that will look pretty on the shelf? I have done this in showhouses with books gotten at the library. They look pretty, and work really well under a lamp if it needs to be a bit taller.
I have also used it to line drawers, or shelves. I find it pretty and pleasant to open the door of the linen closet and see the shelves with a simple, but pretty patterned paper.
Another idea is to line a tray with the paper. You can have a piece of glass cut to keep it from getting damp when serving beverages as shown.
