The Wrapping Paper
Instead of balling all that used wrapping paper up and throwing it in the trash, run it through the paper shredder. Set it aside and you are now well stocked with filler to use for gift bags, gift baskets or shipping packages at any time of the year. It can get re-used over and over again this way.
White lights are extremely versatile for other occasions throughout the year. Something as simple as coiling them up and setting them about in glass jars is an easy solution for accent lighting anytime, anywhere. (Beautiful accent lighting as you bring in the new year tonight!)
Shorter strands can be used as under cabinet or bookshelf lighting. Add it to a thin product called cordmate (typically used to disguise cords along walls). Cut to size, drill holes that are spaced and sized according to your light strand, insert lights, snap shut and install using the adhesive strip included on the back.
Cheers to re-inventing in the new year!
