What To Do With Wrapping Paper Ends

When you're left with the end piece of wrapping paper, it seems like such a waste to not use it, especially gorgeous paper like this one. Instead of recycling it, or hoping that one day you'll need it to wrap a giant pencil, try making a paper bow gift topper instead. 

PAPER BOW MADE WITH THE ENDS OF WRAPPING PAPER:

Materials 

  • Wrapping paper cut into strips (we cut them into 1" strips).
  • Stapler (how awesome is this frog stapler??? Thanks J!!) 
  • Tape

Step 1  - Tape the ends of each strip to form a loop.

Step 2  - Place one of the loops inside another to form an 'x'. Then place the 'x' inside another loop. Repeat until it forms a flower.

(Tip: Once the flower is formed, place on a flat surface and arrange the loops to make sure you're happy with the shape before continuing to next step)

Step 3  - Staple in the centre. You can leave the bow as is, or place a circle sticker to cover the staple as I did here.
