Recycled Paper = Free Gift Wrap

A paper shredder is an awesome thing! Besides keeping identity theft at bay I like to use it to make free gift wrap tissue paper for gift wrapping bags and shipping packages.

You can shred any type of paper if you’re going to use it for shipping. If you’re going to use it to wrap a gift then I would suggest choosing your paper with the end product in mind. Even then, you’d be surprised what types of things can be shredded to make beautiful shredded “tissue”:

  • odd pieces of gift wrap that are left over after wrapping a gift
  • used wrapping paper that is not fit to reuse to wrap another gift
  • comics
  • newspaper
  • magazine pages
  • tissue paper that is not fit to reuse for gifts

I started this blog to share with you all the results of years of turning trash into treasures. Hopefully I'll spark some new creative thoughts and if that happens I hope that you'll share your discoveries and together we’ll build a blog that will singlehandedly reduce global warming and save the world! Okay, maybe that’s a grand goal but we should be able to at least downsize our own trash output.
