Gift-wrapping season is here, and with it comes those awkward scraps of wrapping paper that you're not quite sure what to do with. But if you have a bunch of wrapping paper that doesn't fit any gifts, there's solution that’s so adorable you just might end up wanting to save every scrap of leftover wrapping paper you’ve got: turning it into ribbon for your gifts.
To do it, first cut the wrapping paper into thin strips (cutting the long way if you’re working with a rectangle). Once you’ve finished cutting up the paper, curl it using a pair of scissors. This can be done the same way you’d curl ribbon—gently run the edge of your scissors from one end of wrapping paper to the other.
Make sure you’re scraping the inside of the wrapping paper, not the design on the outside. This will cause the wrapping paper to curl up; the more pressure you apply, the more curl you’ll get. For this hack, the full length of paper should be curled, but you can vary the kinds of coils you’re creating.
Once every strip of paper has been curled, you can grab a section by the middle and begin layering other sections on top of it. Stack the curled strips so they lay over each other in the very center of each strip; this should create a full curl on both sides of the stack.
You’re looking to emulate the same design you’d get from a curly ribbon bow. Instagram user @kelleynan demonstrates this hack from cutting to layering. She also advises DIYers to layer the curled wrapping paper scraps in different directions to help create a more full, layered effect.
Using up your scraps each year means your homemade wrapping paper ribbon will be a perfect match for your presents. If you’re someone who loves to go all out with matching wrapping paper designs

If you're eager to embrace a maximalist design style at home, note that the look is very much in vogue today, with many people living by the «more is more» philosophy and embracing the colorful and whimsical. That said, it's important to note the maximalism of the 21st century is a bit different than in decades past.
These days, home renovation projects are often discussed in terms of your return on investment or how quickly a project can speed up the selling process. It’s widely agreed upon that renovating a kitchen or bathroom is typically a financially responsible choice if you plan to sell because these projects typically see a great return in the form of a higher sale price—or a quicker sale.

Those of us who have spent a few years (or more) in the American West know that winter here doesn’t look like winter in much of the country.
