Sticky Wrapping Paper



I was just introduced to this new adhesive wrapping paper that Hallmark came out with. And I'm loving it. It's basically one big roll of sticky note — the entire backside surface is covered with a re-stickable coating. Brilliant. And available in some cute designs as well.

I wrapped up a package to see how the paper worked, and I definitely had to experiment with new wrapping techniques, although it was lovely not to have any tape on the package.

But my biggest instinct upon trying it out, was that wrapping presents is just one tiny application for this product. How would you use a giant roll of not-too-sticky, re-positionable paper?

I would roll up a piece about the size of a place mat and bring it out to eat with us. Some restaurant tables just seem gross and my daughter won't leave a real place mat in place. Would it work?

Hmm...not sure how else I'd use it, but thanks for posting about this. I saw them the other day at Hallmark and was afraid to try them out, but I think now I'll give them a go!

Alternate use: personalization of school notebooks. Perfect for the fickle crowd...

Sounds like contact paper to me. I'd use it as we use contact paper: to line cabinets and drawers, to cover boxes and furniture...

I'd cover a clipboard then put a layer of Modge Podge over it to be sure it sticks well. Embellish with a ribbon and what a great gift!

Sounds like it would work well for bulletin boards and fancying up science project backgrounds... cool!

Is it reusable quality or does it tear easy?

I'd use it for decorating / wrapping boxes up to give them a new lease of life. Even notebooks, handmade cards, files or crazily simple framed prints for children's rooms.

gee, i feel like getting a few rolls myself!

I would use it as a table runner for a kids' party or even to cover the whole table for kids' activities.

Cover bulletin boards, cover boxes and use them for a child's "treasure box" of collectibles...

How about lining the back of an open faced book shelf or cabinet to liven it up a bit, I have done this with fabric but this stuff would be much easier!

Might be nice for decoupage-ing things!
