How To Get More From A Roll of Gift Wrap
With so many cute designs of gift wrap while shopping the other day, seeing all these adorable patterns, I couldn’t stop thinking of what other things could I do with this adorable wrapping paper other than wrap present with it.
Do you remember how we use to cover our school books with a paper bag? This idea is really no different other than I covered a few of my favorite cook books with wrapping paper to add to my kitchen decor. Today I am sharing how to get the most from a roll of gift wrap while creating a farmhouse kitchen counter vignette.
How To Cover A Book with Wrapping Paper
- Wrapping paper (found at Michael’s)
- magnets (optional) (found at Michael’s)
Directions on how to cover book with gift wrap
- Lay your paper, pattern side face down. Open your book and laying cover side down. mark the edges of your open book with pencil
- Cut your paper leaving an extra 1 1/2″ above the top and bottom marks , and an extra 3″ on the sides
- Remove the book. Fold a
1 1/2″ strip down at the top and bottom edge, then lay your open book inside cover side down. The top and bottom edge of your book should match up to the top and bottom edge of your paper.
- Centering your book, mark 1/4″ away from the book’s right and left side (this is to allow give so the book can close), fold the extra paper on each side over this mark, and crease. tuck the front and back book covers into the pockets you’ve created in the extra 3″ fold.
- Add magnet to the spine of the book for decoration
I also purchased these adorable mason jar magnets and glued them to the spines of the gift wrapped books
Farmhouse Canisters with Rolled Gift Wrapping
Here is another idea on how to get the most from your gift wrap:
- Cover Max White Spray Paint
- Roll of Gift Wrap
- Mod Podge
- Sponge brush
Directions on how to cover canister with gift wrap
- Cut gift wrap to the size of the canister
- Apply mod podge with sponge brush to canister
- Wrap your gift wrap around the canister much like applying wallpaper smoothing out the paper along the way.
- Tip: if the paper does get some wrinkles along the way use a blow dry and smooth them out.
Mixing, Matching and Coordinating Rolls of Gift Wrap Creating A Farmhouse Vignette
To coordinate and create this farmhouse vignette, A large white patter was used as the background piece, I my favorite round galvanized tray was lined it with vegetable gift wrap and used to accommodate my refurnished can canisters, small rooster and gift wrapped covered cook books.
- Chicken wire Gift Wrap
- Vegetable Gift Wrap
- Silverware Gift Wrap
- Galvanized Round Tray
- Large white Platter
Those of you that know me, know I have this thing about things matching and this vignette I must say really does match and I am still able to bring out the whites that I have been adding to our farmhouse kitchen.
It’s funny, no matter what I have tried to do to decorate this corner of the kitchen counter nothing seemed to take on a look I was ever happy with. I don’t know if it is because of the color of the counters and walls, but this vignette I really do like! It’s amazing how just a few roll of gift wrapping can change a and add so much for such a small cost.
