When my daughter was born last year, I was given some very nice gifts. Some of those gifts were wrapped so beautifully with cute, cute wrapping paper. I think gift wrapping is almost a lost art, and I admire those who take the time to wrap presents. (I'm usually the gift bag sort.) I hated to throw out that beautiful wrapping paper, so instead used it as an inexpensive room decoration.
I bought a three-pack of cheapy canvas boards from the dollar store. Next, I cut the wrapping paper out in a rectangle shape that was slightly smaller than the canvas. Finally, I glued it on with white glue, covering the entire front and back of the wrapping paper. When it was dry, I attached it to the wall in my daughter's room. Ta-da! A cheap, easy, and sentimental room decoration.
