Recycled Wrap Art

Home Paper Crafts

As we get our presents ready to wrap, I love going to John Boak’s web site, Wrap Art where he comes up with the most ingenious ways to use trash to wrap gifts. This tree wrapping above is made up large paper from a marketing flyer, a green web wine bottle sleeve, red metallic shopping bag paper, and gold ribbon.

Pick up CRAFT: 05 from the Maker Shed which features John’s wrap art on the cover as well as lots more paper project ideas for the holidays and beyond.
