When I went to package up the snowman for delivery, I didn't have any appropriate Christmas shreds. So, what's a crafty scrapper supposed to do?? Use your hubby's shredder to MAKE shreds out of Wrapping Paper. Of course, double sided wrapping paper would have worked better but, i think this turned out cute!
Do you know what else wrappping paper is good for?? Ribbons. "What", you say, "how can you use wrapping paper for ribbons?" Take thin strips (not as thin as shredded, about 3/4 an inch is good. I folded over some leftover paper I had and just cut several sheets at once. Don't crease it while your cutting but a little fold isn't going to hurt. Then, with the blade of your scissors, run the strip over it just like curing ribbon. it will curl very cute! Slap it onto your present w/tape & cover the tape w/a cute stamped tag. Viola! Instant matching ribbon. Unfortunately, I didn't take a pic of this beautiful present. Next time I wrap, I promise to show what I mean.
