Post Christmas gift wrap uses

Christmas is over and if you didn't go for some of the recycled gift wrapping ideas you probably have lots of used Christmas wrapping paper ready to throw in the bin. But, here are a few ideas, my favourites for using old Christmas wrapping paper: 

Frist, take all the ribbons and bows off and save for any craft or arty projects.
Make new decorations out of it! Follow New York store Anthropologie's window display and make some decorations ready for next year. Try making
these cute Christmas stars with the thicker paper. Or an origami wreath. Or decoupage it onto shapes for next years ornaments.

Pack away your Christmas decorations with it.

Shred it! And use it for filling future gift boxes etc.

Happy New Year!
