That's a wrap!
Rather than let partial rolls of leftover wrapping paper accumulate, I put them to use in the workshop. I use the paper to cover and protect my workbench from glue and finishes. Some papers feature a grid of cutting guides on the back—perfect for sketching up designs. I've found wrapping paper so useful, I raid the clearance bins after Christmas.
