Here's another gift inspired DIY. This time it's a gift wrapping idea.
I really like how this kraft paper looks, but I didn't have any.. and it was already in the evening so I couldn't buy some. For some reason I always come up with an idea when it's getting dark, not a good thing when you're trying to make clear photos. Luckily I had my boyfriends camera now instead of my old iPhone ;)
So, I've used up a few rolls of wrapping paper recently and I kept the cardboard rolls that were inside.These have the same look and feel as the kraft paper. It's only a bit sturdier. But it does the job! I wouldn't try to wrap anything but box-shaped items though.
These were my supplies:
- cardboard rolls
- tape (I also used masking tape)
- gift tags (got mine at AH XL)
Here you can also tape it first with regular tape to make sure it stays closed.
This is a great way to use up leftover material, plus I like the patched up look of it. You can also use this material for a variety of different projects. Like this envelope and gift tag diy by Emily I found recently.
Have a great week!
