If you’re like me, the process of wrapping Christmas presents occasionally turns me into a Scrooge. Once I’ve gathered the paper, scissors, tape, bows, etc., and spread it all out on the kitchen table, there’s no room left to wrap the gifts! And let’s not forget to mention losing the tape, then the scissors….and of course, the wrapping paper will roll off the cabinet or table top at least once or twice.
Well, now someone has come up with a great idea to simplify this process and has restored my enthusiasm for wrapping gifts!
All you need is an old or recycled kitchen stool, 4 casters, some fabric (a twin sized sheet is perfect) and 2 packages of bias tape.
- Flip the stool over so the seat becomes the base.
- Attach the 4 casters to the upside-down seat, and now you have a mobile storage bin!
- Using the fabric (or sheet) you’ve chosen, cut sections to the length and width you want for the storage bags.
- You’re kind of making small pillow-cases that will be attached to the legs of the stool and used as pockets.
- The bias tape will be used to make the string-ties for the pockets that will attach to the stool.
Although this design was used for a wrapping paper station, use your imagination to come up with hundreds of ideas for your own home.
