    Default What happens when you run out of gifting wrapping paper

    The Frankengift box out of 3 different papers!

    I was too lazy to go buy another set of wrapping paper.
    This gift box looks cool to me. What do you think?

    It would have been even better if you had a pile of odd size bits of paper. Just glue them all to the box until it's covered.

    It looks like what i imagine the 'Wham' bar wrapper would look like if you zoomed really close into it and had a gander. I may have had a glass to many. awesome wrapping mate.
    Are you keeping up with the commodore? Because the commodore is keeping up with you...

    Love it - that's a truly traditional way of dealing with a low supply of wrapping paper!

    One of the Kirstie Allsopp Christmas crafting specials from a couple of years ago suggested doing this with foreign-language newspapers, funnily enough, but that's probably not a very cheap way of doing it.

    For my own part, I prefer applying small appliques to bags (usually from these guys), nowadays, as it doesn't cost me much more than disposable wrapping, and I think it's a bit more useful.
