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.


  1. thanks for sharing such a great idea

  2. Whew! I'm glad you posted this today because I have 33 toilet paper rolls saved. I was going to use some of them to corral cords but I LOVE this idea. I bet contact paper would also be a cute way to cover the rolls. Thank you.

  3. Have you ever considered about including a little bit
    more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.
    But think of if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips,
    this website could definitely be one of the very best in its field.
    Fantastic blog!
