A few years ago I was really tired of my wrapping paper rolls unraveling when I stored them away. They would take up extra space and look messy, and the unraveled section would crinkle and sometimes tear. (Yes, we’ve established I’m nuts.) Taping the loose edge down was an OK solution, but that would rip up some of the paper each time you went to use the roll again. Really annoying. So I came up with the idea in the picture above. Tightly re-wrap the paper around its roll and fasten both edges with a large paper clip. That’s it. A cheap and easy DIY solution for a problem you probably never knew you had!
