    left over wrapping paper?

    hi-

    wondering if anyone has good ideas for the beautiful wrapping paper i am left with (from gifts that were given to me).

    i thought i could make coasters by sandwiching the paper inbetween glass, sealing with metallic tape. any other ideas???

    thanks!

    Decoupage?

    I'm not really familiar with it, but maybe you could use cut-outs of the paper that way. OR -- this just occurred to me -- maybe you could use some cut-outs on next year's home-made Christmas cards? like a collage card? I don't know...

    I've covered light switchplates with wrapping paper. Use Modge Podge or, if you're careful, just plain white glue. If the paper is thin, it's easy to rip.

    a friend of mine refinished a wood chair using modge podge and cut outs from wrapping paper. it made a very cute, easy re-do chair.

    I used last years leftover paper to decorate...I 'wrap' my framed pictures/mirrors in the living room and hallway to make them look like gifts---and re-hang it!
    But not the family photos, just print art and mirrors.

    Decorate a box for jewelry or somewhere where you'll always see it.

    Make some cards, and decorate a folder for the cards.

    Make some ornaments with it. Line some drawers, decoupage onto knobs.

    My SIL made a paper lamp with some paper she really liked I gave her. I beleive she decoupaged onto a frame.

    I used to cover little hardcover journals that I bought at the dollar store with wrapping paper and line the inside cover with them too. Collages and cards are fun too.

    depending upon how thick it is, origami practice would allow you to use the paper

    You could always cut a swatch and frame it. I've done that with just paper I liked. It's a very graphical way to decorate.
