If you’re like me at all, you love getting packages in the mail, especially from Amazon. I like to order Christmas presents, books, clothes, really anything from there. Sometimes people surprise me with gifts too!

One of the added bonuses of ordering from them is the material they use as a stuffing/filling to protect your product and fill extra space... kraft paper! One package that I received had yards and yards of beautiful brown paper. What a treat for me! At first my husband started crumpling it up to take out to the trash. “NO!” I said.

Why waste that paper when I could use it for so many projects?

Wasting is something that bugs me the most. People throw away some of the most useful stuff. Filling up landfills and causing pollution. Waste waste waste.

So I went to work with the kraft paper and tried to use all of it and was pleased that I had used it all up on some fun projects.


Here is a list of some of the things I made with the free kraft paper:

What great ideas! We get a lot of kraft paper from Amazon too. I love the look of it, and I have mostly been using it for wrapping paper.

Thanks for the ideas. I’ve never really been sure what to do with the paper but didn’t like wasting it. Think I’ll start saving it for future craft projects!
