This Inspired By post is part of a mini-series on the things and people that inspire my gift wrapping. Inspiration can strike at any time!

Last year, paper artist Jeffery Ruddell made this beautiful ornament as a thank-you gift for a Christmas present he received. He made it out of the wrapping paper the present was given in, taking "giving back" to another level!
While I don't think I have the patience to make something so intricate, I am inspired by the ingenuity and spirit shown in this recycling project.
What about you? Did you save any wrapping paper from gifts this year? If so, what are you going to do with it?
- Inspired By series. What else am I inspired by? Bugs & Fishes and church potlucks, to name a few. View the series to date here!
- Wrap Story: Shape Shifting. Here, an old gift bag becomes part of a new look for baby shower presents.
- Wrap Story: M&M Bowls. In which a wedding invitation and ribbon are recycled into the gift wrapping.
