Tissue paper is an incredibly versatile material which is why it makes a great substitute for wrapping paper when it comes to presenting your gift. Tissue paper will give you a slightly softer and classic look and is very easy to work with. One of the main benefits of using tissue paper is that it comes in a multitude of colours and patterns and is suitable to use all year round. If you make sure you always have a few reams of tissue paper in the house, you know you are able to wrap a gift quickly and effortlessly. Where possible always try and buy acid free tissue paper as this means the material will not tarnish whatever you are wrapping. Selecting colourfast tissue paper is also important as it means should the paper get wet, the colour will not affect whatever you have wrapped. Although tissue paper is ideal for wrapping most things, larger items might be more problematic, as you may not be able to find sheets big enough. It is possible to buy tissu... continue reading
