I’m always looking out for ways to re-use and recycle. And Christmas is a great opportunity to re-use all sorts of interesting things as wrapping paper…I love to use maps…


and old music scores ….

… and old calendars…


This year, instead of buying wrapping paper, why not look around your home and see what you have already that you can re-use for wrapping those gorgeous parcels?  You’ll be amazed at how creative you can get! And it’s so much more fun than just buying a roll of  wrapping paper…..
