What better way to show someone you love them than by giving them a bunch of flowers, but real flowers die, so why not give paper flowers!
It’s easy enough to make yourself a couple of flowers. All you need to do is fold a single wrapper into four or quarter it. Fold it in half again and then fold in 1cm sections creating a zig-zag imprint, cut along the top folded area. Tie at the other end with twine or wire and unfold the paper in petals.
You could even create a few and use an empty toilet roll as the base, like a vase.
Save money and the environment by using your toilet paper wrapper to wrap your presents. Not only are you reusing the wrapper, but you’re also sharing Squares to Spare with your friends and family.
Some presents may be a bit larger and need multiple wrappers to wrap, or you could use some newspaper as the base wrapping and then accent with your Squares to Spare wrapper.
From cranes to crowns and boxes to blooms, there are plenty of origami instructions available online that you can create with your Squares to Spare wrapper. Once you make these beautiful objects, they can either be used as decorations in your home or given as small gifts.
Wrapping flowers or herbs as gifts
When you get a bunch of fresh flowers, they often come in some plain paper. Add some flair by adding a Squares to Spare wrapper to the wrapping. You could also save money and use flowers from your garden as the bouquet, or the paper flowers above, and a Squares to Spare wrapper to wrap it.
Another green gift you can give and use a toilet paper wrapper is giving the gift of herbs! You could pick a selection of herbs from your garden, wrap them with a wrapper and gift them to a friend or family member for them to use in their cooking.
