After all the presents are open do you salvage any of the boxes or gift bags if thy still look good?
Absolutely! I reuse those until they are worn out. I also reuse gift bags given all year long. I am not ashamed to admit it! LOL
edit to say: I also reuse tissue paper:)
i save gift bags.
i re-use bags all the time, but not boxes. i have a set of gift bags that say no peeking. I only use them for DD and she knows to give them back to me for the next year.
I sure do.
Also, tonight or tomorrow we will be cutting up some of the leftover bows to use in making a fireworks craft.
(just little shards of the bow glued onto black construction paper).
