not a toy, but the brown packing paper in Eden packages

closed account closed account
I had been saving all the packing materials because I will be moving. Tonight when I went to wrap presents I realized that the brown paper was perfect! I never noticed it has perforation in intervals. I didn't even need scissors.

Being GREEN with brown paper. and maybe I'm a pack rat. Pun anyone?

That's a good idea. My mom does the same thing (except with newspaper), but it's because she's poor.

I'm poor too. I used to use the comics section of the newspaper, but I can't afford a newspaper subscription anymore.

The brown paper seems to rip too easily for me, I just used it to fill up space in boxes and make my friends search for their gifts in it. XD

WE decorated it and used it as wrapping paper. Looks cute with brown twine as ribbon.

I love that idea! I always save it, but usually just use it as packing paper when I send packages. I really like the idea of decorating it and using it as wrapping paper with twine. Especially for smaller gifts.

That's a good idea. I would never have thought of it. Will have to do that next year, then decorate it with some ribbons to spice it up.

I just reuse it as packing in boxes. My friends would freak if they found out the packing paper around their stuff used to be packed around sex toys.

I use it for sewing patterns, but using it to wrap gifts is a brilliant idea. I'll have to remember that!

That's a great idea.. I always feel so wasteful when I throw out all of that paper. Now I'll have to save it for wrapping paper.

This is a really good idea! Now I feel bad about throwing all mine away. Ha ha. Well, I couldn't afford presents, anyway, but still. I could have used it some other way.

I don't think reusing packing materials is weird. A while back when I was frequently moving, as I unpacked I smoothed out the butcher paper I'd used and stashed it with the plastic totes in a closet until I needed it again.

I love reusing packing material! Boxes too infact.

I used the paper to wrap a present this holiday! There's so much of it, I felt guilty tossing it out or recycling it before reusing it first.

I wrapped so many gifts with my packing paper (especially stocking stuffers; the perforations were perfectly spaced) it's not even funny.

I used it to wrap gifts as well, and we are moving soon so I've been using the rest I have saved to package glass items... I try and reuse stuff too. Nothing wrong with that!

I saved some, tossed some. I did use some to pack a box though.

I use it to let my nephews have something to do arts and crafts on. My mom always wonders where I get it all from.

I normally toss it, but after reading this post, I think I can find better uses for it in the future
