Store your gift wrappers for the next season


ORGANIZE ribbons by rolling them around toilet paper rolls.

After the holidays, cleaning up and storage is a must to start the year right. Here is a DIY idea that can help get you started. Christmas is all about wrapping gifts tied up with pretty ribbons and bows. We are usually left with odd quantities of wrapping paper and yards of ribbons.

Here is a practical and easy way to store them neatly.

USE a plastic bin to store wrapping paper and ribbons neatly.

Use toilet paper rolls to secure the wrappers. You can even write on the rolls and label the use of the wrapper if you have a collection of assorted wrappers. Toilet paper rolls can also be used to keep ribbons in place.  After using yards and yards of ribbon, the original spool will be too big to store, as it will take up a lot of storage space.

Follow this suggestion so you can get organized and neatly store all your wrapping materials. Place them in a plastic bin, so you can keep the edges of the wrappers from getting crumpled.

USE toilet paper rolls to secure wrapping paper for organized storage.
