Recyled Gift Wrapping

For any parents out there with little ones at kinder, preschool or childcare you may, like me, find that you have endless piles of paintings from your children.
While we love the artwork and try our best to hold onto ALL of it, we just can't. Rather than throw the paintings in the recycle bin (when our kids aren't looking!), I now use the fantastic artwork as gift wrapping paper. I also make matching cards with it.
Just cut a strip of the painting and paste it to coloured card or paper. It makes for a lovely personalised gift. Give it a go!
Got any other ideas on what to do with kids artwork, share it with Shimi followers!
