Presents That Fit Into the HomeChristmas gifts that fill a need in the home have various advantages - you don't have to know the size and they are likely to outlast all others as reminders of the giver. In addition most people want and need something for the home.

How to Make A Christmas Scrapbook
Here's a great idea for salvaging those used or leftover Christmas gift wraps.
You may use a regular 3-ring loose-leaf notebook or cut cardboard to any size you like for the covers. If you make your covers you can punch holes in them later and put covers and inside pages together with left-over Christmas ribbons (press them smooth first).
Measure exact dimensions of Inside covers. Cut out one piece of gift wrap for each (this could be a contrast pattern) and cement into place covering overlaps.
Select a scene from a Christmas card and glue to the center of front cover. Trim the edges if you like with leftover ribbon gold braid or tape. For the inside pages use your imagination. Group the Christmas cards you want to save on the pages and glue them to paper (construction paper would be good for this). Put in souvenirs of Christmas parties and photos.
