Upcycled gift wrapping

Gift wrapping usually just gets thrown away so I really like to reuse what is seen as scrap for projects like this, I’ll be experimenting with a few ideas before Christmas, and if something works really well I’ll be making a tutorial.

But for this project I didn’t have time. Today is father’s day here in Norway so I’ll be going to see mine later on today. But I can’t show up empty handed so I bought him a small gift. To wrap it I made a gift bag out of an old newspaper, decorated it with a bow made from a magazine and card out of an old puzzle piece.

It’s not the most elegant gift in history, and I could use some practice with folding the gift bag. But as always it’s what’s inside that count J

What a great idea - I don't like throwing away all that beauty, and you've inspired me to upcycle in the future! I found your link at The Project Queen - thanks for sharing.
