My husband showed me this cool idea while we were wrapping presents. He heard about it from an architect friend of his. All you do is cut a a wrapping paper roll or toilet paper roll down the length of the tube, as shown in the picture. It then can wrap easily around the left over wrapping paper, making it stay together and simple to store. Fabulous idea.
I love life hacks. They make life easier and present very clever solutions to simple problems. How to store wrapping paper can be one of those silly first world problems. If you add tape to the edge, you rip a portion of it. Adding a rubber band can crease it, causing an unattractive wrapping job. Leaving it alone makes it unravel and not store as efficiently. Here’s a solution that might just work to solve your wrapping paper woes. You can find other great Christmas hacks here.
