I have this awesome friend who is so creative. She told me the other day that she goes to the DI or thrift store and buys old patterns and uses them for decoration, wrapping presents, etc.
I like the fact that you can cut the pattern into whatever size you need. I have also used the pattern pieces as wrapping paper. It works great to wrap a white box and tie it up with some cute ribbon.
Now you have a cheap way to wrap your presents without having to spend a ton on tissue paper!
