Take Advantage of the Many Uses of Tissue Paper

Tissue Paper ImageAt one point in time, tissue paper was tissue paper. It came in a plain white color, and its main purpose was for packing. When something needed to be protected, this product always fit the bill.

If you were shipping a package through the mail and didn't want the contents damaged, wrapping it in this resilient product would guarantee intact arrival. If you were moving across town or across the globe, all of a family's breakable and fragile items were enveloped in this white gossamer wrapping that looked so fragile and yet, could withstand so much. Even after the introduction of bubble wrap, this paper continued to be widely used for a number of purposes.

When this product began to come in a variety of colors such as blue, pink, red, yellow, and green, its uses became more even more widely used. People who enjoy creating things came up with the idea of using it to make flowers for decorations at weddings, bridal showers and baby showers. The gifts themselves were covered in the tissue paper and placed in decorative bags.

One of the newest rages in the world of crafting is scrapbooking where the semi-transparency of this filmy tissue can be used in a number of ways. Crumple it up, smooth it out, and glue it to a sheet in the album. You have an excellent backdrop on which to apply your other embellishments.

Another of the many favorites is to gather up some white glue that dries clear, a small brush, water and a bottle or a vase. Once the glue has been watered down, apply it to the vase or bottle. Torn pieces of different colored tissue are then stuck to the object. When it is fully covered, apply another coat of the paste and let it dry. In little time you have created a one of a kind container. Think how lovely a bouquet of flowers would look in this setting.

These are just a couple examples of the many things you can do using tissue paper as your base. Keep plenty of it on hand as you never know when you will have a need for it. Shipping, gift giving and crafting is touching the surface of the many things for which this great product can be used.
