Use Not, Waste Not

I had these construction paper strips left over from cutting circles out for the Lego Birthday Party gift bags

I knew I could use them for something in the future so I saved them.  I found good use for them when I was in a jam for gift-wrapping a present and the only wrapping paper in the house was Christmas themed.  I used two as “ribbon” on a present that I wrapped with brown kraft paper.  
  
For an embellishment, I made a flower using leftover fabric from fabric I used to upholster Sun Kissed Boy #1’s headboard.

I just cut four circles in four different sizes, ranging from small to big.  Scalloping the edges would also be cute but I didn’t think of it until it was done and I was pressed for time.

Then pin thru three little brads and fold the legs back.

Put some hot glue and place on gift.

Viola!!  

I love re-using my scraps! I

Clever reuse of so many things. Looks great too.

Susan said...

I always try to save and reuse things like this, much to the hubby's chagrin, as of course the house is full of things "I am going to use" LOL
