When I'm finished wrapping a present, I never throw away the scraps because you never know when you may be able to use them again. Additionally, each month when I get my Birchbox, I always save the boxes that my goodies come in and recycle them for gift giving. Below are some of the scraps I had in my wrapping container and decided to do a little pattern mixing for a gift I needed for a friend's birthday. I simply wrapped the top of the box in a different paper than I wrapped the bottom of the box, added some leftover ribbon and a tag - and viola! My friend loved the wrapping so much that she didn't want to open it. To me - that's the best compliment to receive because I truly believe it's all about the packaging. Stay tuned for more posts like this to help you package even the simplest gifts!
