12 DIY's of Christmas #7: Quick & Easy Wrapping Paper Bunting

Every year, I find myself with piles and piles of wrapping paper scraps and a lack of things to do with them. This year, instead of filling a box with scraps I'll ignore, I decided to make something pretty that would complement my kraft paper wrapping this year.

DIY#7 - Quick & Easy Wrapping Paper Bunting

All you need to make this cute bunting is a sewing machine, sticky-notes and scraps of paper. Cut itty bitty triangles out of your scrap papers. Attach sewn side out to the sticky part of the sticky notes to keep them from  scattering.

Space the triangles out as much as you want. You can choose to string together sticky notes, or use the same one as you go (you just have to loosen the flags from the sheet and reposition it, then add new triangles).

In the end, you have a super cute wrapping trick that blows traditional, wasteful ribbons out of the water. This one is for a winter birthday, but you get the gist.

What do you do with your wrapping scraps?
