Call me crazy, but even as a kid it made me sad to throw away all the pretty wrapping paper. I would make thank you cards out of it or even just save the pretty little scraps for a rainy day. My mom has always saved gift bags and shirt boxes… but the wrapping paper went straight to the trash can.

What a great collection of ideas! Thanks so much for gathering these together! Angie xo
Those are some great ideas. I am definitely going to have to use a few of those. Not only is it a super fun way to wrap a gift but it's Green. You are using stuff you would normally throw away. I'm down for recycling!!!
