Seasonal Uses for Bubble Wrap

When it comes to bubble wrap, the first thing I think of is… POP! The joy of bubble wrap is just an added bonus to its many functional uses.  We all know bubble wrap is great for packing and protecting your fragile goods, but did you know that there are many other uses for bubble wrap? Today I’ll share some fun seasonal uses for bubble wrap.

Bubble Wrap Holiday Cards:

Handmade holiday cards are an inexpensive way to personalize your gifts and show off your DIY crafting skills.  It’s also a great way to reuse your moving supplies.  There are many uses for bubble wrap on your holiday cards, such as wrapping the entire card in bubble wrap, painting it to use as a stamp, or just incorporate a small strip as decoration like the card on the right developed by Danielle Hunter from Eco Scrapbook.
