The items I bought were wrapped in yards and yards of it. I used some to wrap gifts and my packages looked so unique people asked me where I got the cool wrapping paper.
I decided to use a little of it to make some new pencil cans. This project was so fast and easy. All you need are clean cans, colored paper and the cool packaging paper.
Wrap you can in the colored paper and tape the ends together. Use the packaging paper and loosely wrap the can tucking in the bottom and top ends. You can glue the bottom or use tape. Easy!
I used one can for paint brushes, one for my new shiny metallic Sharpies and one for twine. The little bee is a photo or card holder that I propped inside the can.
How about you? Do you recycle gift wrap and bits of paper? I’d love to hear your great ideas for recycling holiday wrap.
