Ever wonder what to do with all those free calendars, with all those beautiful photos? I receive more than one paper calendar a year from various charitable organizations. I often end up recycling them if cannot find a friend or family member who doesn't already have one.

This past year, I noticed several of the calendars were made with great quality, heavy duty, paper with lots of gorgeous photos. I decided to tear apart the calendars and use the pictures for gift wrapping small presents.
I even taped together several pictures and used them for a larger sized gift.
The presents were colorful and the recipients of the gifts asked where I got the great wrapping paper from.
This is just another way to reuse, recycle, and save money!
