i had a ton of wrapping paper left over from my wedding (used from presents we received) that i wanted to use for something.



i got some left over bubble wrap, which we also have a ton of, scissors, and spray adhesive...


glued the bubble wrap to the wrapping paper, and folded it over....



and VOILA! awesomely pretty bubble mailers:

Love it. Does the spray adhesive work well enough that you would not be afraid to use them in the post?

thanks Smiley

i let them cure for about 4 hours.
i still used packing tape around the edges because the USPS is not known for being gentle. BUT the spray adhesive worked really well at sticking the bubble-wrap to the paper.

This is a great idea.  I have some wrapping paper that I'm not totally fond of, and this would be a good use for it.  Excellent job.  Totally bookmarked.
