Washi Tape Toilet Paper Rolls for Wrapping Paper Storage

I saw this on pinterest and had to try it.  Use a toilet paper roll to wrap around open rolls of wrapping paper, so genius!  I tried it first with a toilet paper roll and it actually did not work that well for skinny wrapping paper rolls.  The toilet paper roll diameter too big for some of my rolls of wrapping paper.  Instead I used a cardboard roll from the inside of one used roll of wrapping paper.  This worked perfectly.  If you have thicker rolls of wrapping paper a toilet paper roll would work.  If you have skinnier rolls you would have to use something smaller in diameter, like the wrapping paper cardboard roll.

I also put some washi tape over the roll to cover up the ugly cardboard.  You dont't have to do this, but it does make the roll look so much cuter.

Who doesn't love washi tape?  

Cut the roll into 4 inch segments with a craft knife.

Wrap with washi tape (optional)

Cut the roll open.

Place on your wrapping paper.

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial.  I love upcycling, let me know how you upcycle old toilet paper or cardboard rolls.
