Well, let me show you! Here are 9 clever ways to reuse leftover holiday wrapping paper to help you better organize your home and office and save some cash along the way!

One way to reuse holiday wrapping paper is by cutting it into gift tags! You can either use scissors or a hole punch to make the tags and then write whatever message you’d like on them.

You can use wrapping paper to make all sorts of fun and festive decorations for your home. For example, you can cut out shapes and glue them to popsicle sticks to make cute holiday flags. Or, you can use wrapping paper to make a wreath or garland. You can even use it to wrap around vases or mason jars to add a bit of holiday cheer to your décor.
You can turn leftover holiday wrapping paper into unique favors for your next party. Simply cut out small shapes, like stars or circles, and glue them onto Hershey’s Kisses. Or, you can make flowers by cutting out petals and wrapping them around a toothpick. Get creative and have fun!

If you have any fabric stiffener on hand, you can turn wrapping paper into coasters! Just cut the paper into whatever shape you want, brush on the fabric stiffener, and let it dry.
