De-cluttering gift wrap

Posted on July 09, 2012 by lessismo | 0 Comments


My theory is that I should have no more than three rolls of paper on hand, at most.

I only save one roll of Christmas paper (the generic gold) that I can use as a unisex birthday/housewarming/baby-shower gift wrap through the year. Then with 1 roll of ‘boy’ and 1 roll of ‘girl’ paper, and a roll of pink, blue and green ribbon I am covered for pretty much any occasion.


I also love the idea of buying a set of calico draw-string bags (eBay - calico drawstring bags). They are less expensive than a paper gift bag and make wrapping really easy. I still get to personalize them with a pretty ribbon/tag, but the wrap is re-usable over and over, or provides a handy bag for storing the gift in if it is a toy or something that needs to be protected or kept together. And unlike paper wrapping they don’t tend to split open on the way to the party.
