Lots of left over Christmas wrapping paper?

Find yourself with lots of left over Christmas wrapping paper? There are many other uses for unwanted wrapping paper which are ideal for children's craftsCutting out a Christmas scene & pasting it onto plain card makes a lovely handmade Christmas card. Use red or green card instead of white card to add a festive feel. Felt tips, crayons & glitter pens can finish off the design. Think of other things to add on like cut out Christmas text & ribbons. You can also create a collage from the cut out scenes as well as using patterned paper which work well in different ways. 

You can also recycle your old Christmas cards by cutting out the pictures & using glue pads to stick them on the plain card to make new Xmas cards  for next year. Or use the pictures as gift tags.
