Remember the days of going into copying stores to ship packages? Now the Shipping stores are merging or purchasing those copying stores and we’re going in to do all of our shipping. We hardly recognize the change of names, like when FedEx acquired Kinko’s and they became FedEx Office.
The current topic over on the Out of Office Blog is an article called: The Holidays are Over, but the wrapping paper remains. Just in this one article you can learn what to do with all of the left over wrapping paper. You know, the rolls that can no longer be called rolls because the resemble a single sheet instead.
Fed Ex Office Solutions suggests that you create things with all that paper. Make a placemat, a coaster, bookmark, or create an entire notebook. Or just use the paper as packing material, now that sounds like FedEx right?. When I packed up all of our stuff to move from one house to another, I used whatever I could get my hands on: The Newspaper, paper towels, toilet paper, I was desperate, so why not use wrapping paper scraps or the stuff just torn off of the gifts? Another suggestion would be to use it to cover a book that you make as a family. Yes you might have to laminate it to make it last. I just know that that would get my kids going, especially if the wrapping paper had Dora or Elmo on it. And what a fun way to spend the day with your kids!
Finding cool ideas for projects and entertaining can prove challenging even if you are the most creative of moms. Whether you want to plan a baby shower for a friend or colleague or find a fun rainy-day activity for your kids, the new Out of Office blog from FedEx Office will get you started with projects for everything from invitations and place cards to tips on how to turn your child’s artwork into a notebook, large poster, or thank you notes. In the future, the blog will feature contests and giveaways, themed series, how-to videos, and the creative insights of guest bloggers and customers.
Quoted from Mom Central
I quoted her because she worded the description of all that you can find at Out of Office perfectly. That’s what they cover, topics to get you through the day with your kids, to get you through the holidays in one piece and to build your business brand made simple. They have six bloggers that make up their team of writers.
