what to do with leftover wrapping paper...
22 Jun 2016
We all have scraps of wrapping paper leftover from those gifts we've loving wrapped and given. Sometimes you buy a roll of beautiful paper only to see leftover slivers get tossed in the trash. So we created these colorful and (super easy to make) pieces of wall art using those scraps that won't go to waste again!
We created a few different collaged pieces using a variety of wrapping paper scraps and put them in frames afterwards to make them feel more elevated.
-wrapping paper scraps
-mod podge & paint brush
-gold leaf kit (optional)
1. Group your wrapping paper scraps by color and compile together a combination that you like. We recommend sticking to a certain color palette so that it feels more cohesive than a mix of all colors.
2. Tear the paper into strips and shapes of your choice.
3. Using mod podge under and over each piece, paint a thin layer over the strips of paper, and mount them to foam core that match the size of your frame. Continue to layer until you're happy with it.
4. Pop the piece into the frame and display! We left the glass out of the frame but you can use with our without the glass on top.
