Christmas is almost here. And Christmas means presents. If you have kids - even more presents. And if you are one of these moms, who love to wrap their childrenâ€™s gifts by themselves, then you will be cluttered with leftover wrapping paper after the holidays. Instead of throwing it away, you can think green and use it wisely for other things like DIY projects or origami.
Now, check the full list of smart uses below.
Follow these steps:
1. Put the piece of paper on the table and place the book you want to wrap opened on top of it. Cut the paper so that you leave about a 2 inch excess on the top and bottom and 4 inches on both sides to fold over the bookâ€™s covers.
2. Mark the top and bottom of the book with a line to know where you have to fold the paper.
Next fold the top length down and the bottom length up.
3. Finally, fold over the front and back covers of the book, tucking them into the little pocket folds that will be created so that it does not shift.
1. Cut the paper into nine 3/4-inch-thick strips with different heights. Ð¢hree of them to be the longest, another three - medium, two - small (with a one inch differential between the heights of the strips), and the last one should be long half as the smallest.
2. Form loops by twisting each strip at both ends. Create a circle out of the smallest one. Fix the ends with a double-sided tape.
3. Layer the strips, starting with the longest ones. Form a circle and stick with a double-sided tape. Finish by putting the circle in the center of the formed ribbon.
