How can I reuse or recycle birthday/Christmas wrapping paper?
It’s John’s birthday today and while between the two of us, we’re not big gift givers, he’s sure to receive presents from family and friends.
Back when John and I first met and still gave gifts, he once wrapped my birthday present in newspapers and elastic bands, with a spoon for a “bow”, but his friends and family are more traditional when it comes to gift wrapping.
So what can we do with the gift wrap once its cast aside? Even with careful opening, it might not be in big enough pieces to use for any substantial present wrapping in the future so what are the alternatives?
And with Christmas around the corner too, any special ideas for reusing or recycling festive Christmas wrapping paper?
