Repurposed wrap


I haven't bought ribbon or wrapping paper (except for 2 rolls last Christmas) since our wedding in 2006. From years of doing invitation design and working in paper stores or creative environments, my drawers were stocked with supplies and one day I thought "Why am I buying more when I haven't even used up what I already have?" So I challenged myself to use it up before buying more.

And that included my bin of fabric scraps. One of my favorite things is to wrap gifts with something I find in there. Plus I have yards of ribbon to use up, which means I can usually find something that works.

Much like this baby gift.


What repurposed materials do you like to wrap with?
