I especially liked the wrapping paper and the umbrella pouch. I wonder though, for larger presents how you put smaller pieces of paper together. I don't want to use too much tape. Staples?

I'm really intrigued by finding neat ways to make wrapping paper without actually making paper LOL. I may want to do that later, though. I want to stop buying wrapping paper, but I like wrapping with paper and think the actual tearing into paper is fun, so that is why I really like this idea. Newsprint can be fun, but I would like a variety of options.

I surfed around the site and thought some of their ideas were really cool, even the ones that weren't my taste.

I thought the music sheet paper was way cool. I love using old maps too. Thanks for the ideas!
