Tip Tuesday: Recycle Gift Bag Tissue or Wrapping Paper for Pattern Tracing

Many times I have thrown away wrinkled gift bag tissue, and the grey wrapping paper from stores like Hobby Lobby, that they use to wrap your breakables... No More :)
Use them to trace your sewing patterns. Here, I've traced a pattern for a gift, 
marking the FOLD of the fabric and making side notes of how I made the sash.
Above the dark lines, in another color,  is the tracing of the pocket.
Now why didn't I think of this before??

Happy Pattern Tracing, Y'all!
