I always use gift wrap to line the drawers in the bedrooms. Sometimes I just buy a roll I like ylfrettub57 and use it - beats waiting!

I often receive gifts wrapped in A4 or A3 sized paintings from my grandchildren. It is so lovely, personalised and very special, more so than expensive shop bought paper.

Great article. I'm packing up to move & decluttering & came across a cyclinder full of beautiful handmade gift papers i used to use for collage class. I don't want to toss them. Thought about making placemats too. Glue them onto some cardboard & laminate. Some other good ideas here too.
