Repurpose Your Gift Wrap Scraps

diy projectsAmberleigh AdoffComment

So this season I designed a simple green tree gift wrap and after wrapping a small gift I realized I had extra scraps that I didn't want to go to waste!  Here are a few ideas for things to create with extra gift wrap or scrapbook paper. 

Here are some helpful tools . . .

You can find the punches on Amazon or at Paper Sources, here is a link to the envelope templates: Paper Source

You can also find envelope templates by just searching online and then print them out and trace them.

Oh! Another tool I almost forgot but is really handy is a bone folder, I use this to smooth down the folds so they are nice and crisp.  To seal the edges of the envelopes a glue stick or double sided tape works great.

I love this tag punch, I use it to make tags out of everything.  I especially like making tags out of old Christmas cards and then using them later.  It works great for kraft paper and my gift wrap (my gift wrap is a little sturdier than most)  This might not work on more flimsy gift wrap.

I made these with the small envelope guide, they would be great for cute notes or to put on Christmas presents as well.

I also used the bigger template to make a larger envelope with the bigger spare pieces I had.

Here I used my triangle punch to create a tree card.  Super simple and cute!

I used my embosser to create the star cause . . . embossing is fun!
