Bob had a delivery in a large cardboard box. Instead of the usual bubble wrap, there was lots of scrunched up brown paper. It seemed too good to shove in the paper recycling bin.
I spent a few minutes unravelling it, and then ironed it with a warm iron. I rolled it all up round a spare cardboard tube from the garage and now have 10 metres of wrapping paper [it’s 75cm wide]
I plan to use it for my Christmas presents – but haven’t decided yet whether to leave it plain and tie up with bright ribbon scraps – or decorate it with potato print stars and snowflakes – or tie with string and add cones, holly and ivy for a ‘rustic’ look.
Not that I have got any Christmas presents sorted out yet [it’s only April after all!]
