D-I-Y > Scrap wrap

description: Turn scrap paper into wrapping paper in a few easy steps. You can use almost anything for the scrap paper - like pages from a book of sheet music, comics books, maps, and more. There's no need wrap gifts with new paper. The wrap can even be a slight hint to what's inside. And better yet - maybe the gift inside is handmade or recycled.

You can also view this project on the super-fab Instructables website.

ingredients:
- scrap paper - like sheet music, magazine pages, - old maps, comic books, or even empty plastic snack bags

tools:
- tape
- scissors

- ruler (for the bow)
- stapler (for the bow)

instructions:
1.Wrap your gift with recycled scrap paper and tape shut.

2. To make the bow, cut 4 strips of paper to 8.5" long x .75" wide. Then cut one piece to 4 " long x .75" wide.

3. Take 2 of the long strips and loop over onto each other. Stack the 2 pieces on top of each other and arrange at at 90 degree angle. Staple the pieces together in the center. Repeat for the 2 other strips.

4. Take the short piece, loop it around and stack it on top of the stapled pairs from step 3. Staple all of these pieces together and you've made yourself a recycled bow!

5. Cut another .75" strip of paper and wrap around the box. Attach the bow to the top and your gift is packed with recycling power!
