Now that the holidays are over, I’m sure you have left-over Christmas wrapping papers that you want to keep for use next Christmas. If you just roll it up, the loose end of your gift wrap roll constantly unravels and the rubber band leaves creases. Using a tape is not a smart idea either because it results in tears.
The proper way to keep the paper neat and free of marks is by cutting an empty card board wrapping-paper tube lengthwise. Then put your rolled-up wrapping paper inside the tube. When you’re ready to use it again, let the free end of the wrapping paper hang from the tube’s slit opening. PRESTO! Your improvised wrapper dispenser lets you release the paper and prevents it from unraveling.
