These are what wrapping paper and wallpaper usually have. I'd never put up anything so permanent as wallpaper, but wrapping paper has always been one of those cheap luxuries. Having vowed to use all on-hand paper before buying more, I find that it's best not even to frequent those aisles in the supermarket and drugstore and to stay away from those places of temptation, stationery departments in bookstores. Since Winns has been gone there've been no more acquisitions of remnants. It's a shame that the designers of wrapping paper for outfits like Hallmark never receive credit for their work. Matisse bought lengths of textiles and used them again and again in his paintings.
