Recycle Leftover Gift Wrap into Birthday Cards

Vote for this contest contender!

Do not throw away leftover pieces of gift wrap! Keep them stacked somewhere, and when you need a quick birthday card, recycle them into a beautiful card. Here's how.

You will need the following:
  • 10" x 5" matching cardstock
  • 4.4" x 4.4" matching embossed paper
  • 4"x 4" cut from ordinary A4 white printer paper
  • leftover pieces of gift wrap
  • quick-drying craft glue (such as Bostik Clear)
  • standard scissors
  • pencil
  • ruler

What to do:

  1. Score the 10" x 5" cardstock to create a card sized 5" x 5".
  2. With the fold at the top, centre and glue the embossed paper to the front of the card.
  3. Cut different sized rectangles and squares from different pieces of gift wrap. Use them to make a collage on the piece of printer paper.
  4. Glue the collage to the front of the card ~ and voila!
