From Junk Mail to Fun Graphic Wrapping Paper
Save bright-colored or interestingly patterned junk mail, office papers, and school papers. Then, cut off the best colorful, graphic pieces to use as holiday wrapping paper. It’s amazing how expensive feeling, heavy, and colorful some junk mail is.
Use Leftover Scraps and Business Cards to Make Gift Tags
After cutting up the junk mail, used office paper, and school papers to use as gift wrap, you might have a few scraps left over. Cut those pieces into small gift cards, punching a hole through the top. This is a great way to reuse the scraps and save them from going into the trash. Another great tip is to fold old business cards in half and punch a hold to create instant gift tags.
