5 Ideas for Left Over Gift Wrap

I always seem to have left over pieces of gift wrap of all different shapes and sizes. Recently I started getting a little creative with what I could do with them, especially if there was a beautiful pattern on it. Below are my 5 favorite things to do with left over gift wrap ~ Enjoy!

1.  Curly Ribbon Bow 
























Take strips of paper and curl as you would curly ribbon. Then either tape pieces together or use a piece of ribbon to tie them together and attach to your gift. 


2.  Embellish a Plain Gift or Kraft Bag














Measure out a strip of gift wrap and use a glue stick to attach to a plain gift bag.


3. Line Drawers
