The FIRST time it was an emergency, since then I've used it more often than official wrapping paper.
Many, many years ago back when we used to get a newspaper. Do they still print those?
I used to be a scanner operator and I hated having to scan something out of the newspaper because of the dot pattern and having to re-screen it to keep from getting a moire pattern.
My parents always did that, and I did it with my children it's become a sort of family tradition.
Didn't realize duct tape was only for emergency use
