Happy Friday! If you're like me, you always have random pieces of wrapping paper leftover, BUT you don't throw them away and let them go to waste. So today, we're showing you how to take all those leftover scraps and turn them into something super cute and useful by making pattern-blocked gift wrap! It's great all-year round but especially handy just in time for the upcoming holidays. Here's how...

Here's how...

1. Align the edges of two pieces of wrapping paper and tape with regular tape on the back side of the paper.

3. Wrap as usual. You can have the seam align parallel with the edge of the box. Or skew the seam diagonally, and then wrap as usual from there.

Finally, finish with a bow! Voila! How cute are these gifts?! I love that it still looks intentional and is a great way to make sure every inch of wrapping paper gets used. Plus, they're extra colorful, which I love.
