  • We save & re-use them. My kids will decorate boxes with the tissue paper, they have made "stained glass" before using Cut outs of plexiglass!

  • I reuse them as long as they are in good condition. If they are not then the bags actually go to my 5 year old DD. For some reason she loves the gift bags to play with it.

  • As long as they are in decent condition totally save it. I reuse the bags & tissue paper to re gift for others. Or I use them for craft projects, tissue paper I use a lot for cute crafts. Bags if they have a pretty picture on them you can cut them out & make wall hangings out of them, paste them to cardboard & frame it & you have a cheap/cute decoration for your childs room or anywhere in your house!
