    Recycle packing paper and make a basket

    This is a cool project. It says you can use wallpaper or gift wrap as well. I think you can even use the brown kraft paper.

    I am in the process of packing to move. I am wrapping my things in the tons of that paper given to me by a friend's daughter after her recent move. Now I can recycle it into something useful for my new sewing space!

    Thanks so much for the post!

    Years ago I had someone make me a basket exactly like that...out of FABRIC. This could be a way to use up some of your scraps.

    That is so cute, I have it bookmarked and hopefully one of these days I will have a chance to do one. Do you have any idea how much paper it takes, I think it would be adorable out of wrapping paper.
    Happy Quilting

    I can't believe I've been putting this paper in the recycle bin and I could have been making baskets!!! Thanks for the link. I'm going to be re-purposing this paper now!
