Use those left over scraps of wrapping paper to create a cute ornament!
This ornament project is a great way to recycle all those scrap pieces of ribbon, wrapping paper or little things that may be currently in your junk drawer. If you don't have any little toys on hand, check your local Dollar Store. At this time of year, they usually come out with mini ornament sets that only cost 1 dollar. These mini ornament sets can look like a variety of things (like nutcrackers, angels etc) that you could use in your own ornament.

    Step 1

    With your scrap of wrapping paper, wrap your box the same way you normal would. However, in the places where you would apply tape, you will apply Tacky Glue. Applying the glue, will help make the bag more stable. Also just wrap up one end of your box and leave the other end open.

    Now take your glue gun, and drop some hot glue into the bottom of your bag. Then take your stuffing and put it on top of the glue. During this step you may want to use something like a pencil or a chopstick to push the stuffing into the glue. Keep repeating this step until your bag is about a little more than half way full.

    The reason why were adding the stuffing, is to make our bag more stable while giving it some shape.

    Gather your small toys and start playing around with the look of your ornament. In my ornament, I used a few small toys, some buttons and scrap piece of wrapping paper (which I rolled up to look like a roll of wrapping paper). When your happy with the placement of your toys, hot glue them into place.
