Ever get those really annoying bits of wrapping paper left over at the end of the pack or roll that never fit anything? Well, me too. This time of year is an expensive time for me with Mother's Day, Easter, mums birthday, my brothers birthday and my fiance's birthday all within a few weeks and at the moment we are really short of cash.

I didn't see the point of buying more paper when I had enough to wrap the last birthday present, it was just in pieces. I lined up the paper into a large square and taped it together with some "wrapped with love" tape that I had left over from Christmas and then wrapped the gift. I am quite pleased with the result and I used the remaining trimmed scraps to make a curly ribbon, just by using scissors to curl strips and some glue dots to attach. I know this isn't the most amazing or most skilled craft I have ever done, but I was so pleased with the effect I thought I would share. After all it's always the simple ideas that work the best.

With the fancy tape you used, it looks like you cut the papers on purpose. I really like the result.
