Wrapping Paper

I have a tip I'd like to share with everyone. Birthday and gift paper is so expensive to buy all year and right now there are some great sales on wrapping paper. Every Christmas I buy wrapping paper and bows that don't look to Christmassy and use the left overs for wrapping birthday presents

    Default Wrapping Paper

    I have a tip I'd like to share with everyone. Birthday and gift paper is so expensive to buy all year and right now there are some great sales on wrapping paper. Every Christmas I buy wrapping paper and bows that don't look to Christmassy and use the left overs for wrapping birthday presents the rest of the year.

    Nice idea! Another idea is to go to a school supply store and get tear off sheets of bulk paper. Then, make patterns on the paper using various shapes and objects and paint.

    What I do is catch the after Christmas sales at the
    Dollar Stores. It ususally runs for only $1 roll, but
    I catch it half off so it is only $.50 then. I get at
    least 10 rolls every year so I will have it, plus I
    supply family with some too. And then for other
    holiday other than Christmas, I wrap gifts with the
    white side out and let my kids decorate it. They love
    it giving it to their friends with there own designs
    on it.

    Re: Wrapping Paper


    I do the same thing! I get bags and bags of bows after Christmas dirt
    cheap, and try to get as much non-christmasy wrapping paper as possible.

    I also have two birthdays right after Christmas- my daughter will be 5

    on the 27th, and my son will be 8 on Jan 15th. We celebrate them
    together in January, but it's great getting their wrapping paper and
    bows taken care of cheap before hand.

    Re: Wrapping Paper


    If you have a newspaper that's printed near your home, another idea
    for year-round wrapping paper is to buy roll ends of newsprint from
    the printer. When I was homeschooling my youngest, I would buy one or
    two of these roll ends per year at $1 each, and it kept us in paper
    all year for various art projects, wrapping, time lines, etc.

    Last year I put all the Christmas presents in pillow cases and the receivers
    liked the idea. I plan to do it again this year.

    Wal mart has wrapping paper for 88 cents sometimes. It is decent size rolls. Also the Dollar Tree store stores have character paper...this year I got princesses, mickey mouse and Winnie the Pooh for $1 each.
