    some of it is so nice like the foil type but it just ends up being thrown away

    do any of your arty people know of any uses for it or does everyone just bin it?

    If the paper has trees or cool stuff on it, I cut it out and use it for cards.
    If it's PRETTY paper, I use it for backgrounds for my scrapbooks. Looks REALLY good too.

    Just remember that it isn't archival quality and over time can damage the photos in your scrapbook.

    We used it the other day in the classroom to play "gift wrap the student" at our class party :D

    Of course there were a couple I'd have liked to wrap a bit tighter than others...

    Students have also used the foil paper to make shiny Christmas ornaments and cards for their trees. We die cut shapes like Christmas trees, ornaments, stockings and then use the gift wrap put behind them to show off the shapes...very pretty :D

    Teachers love using trash :wink:
