Crafty Wrapping Paper Storage

Hi there,
Holiday season passed and now you are wondering about where to store all those wrapping papers? I know storing gift wrappers or craft papers can be tricky sometimes. I have devised a special box for this purpose and the awesome thing is "It is super EASY & super CHEAP!" 

Things you will need :
A shoe box , I took for this project.

  1. Box with a lid.( Large shoe box)
  2. Craft paper.
  3. Pen/Marker.
  4. Protractor.
  5. Paper cutter.
  6. Scissors.
  7. Tape.


Take a shoe box or any other box with lid. It should be large enough to hold several rolls of chart papers.
At one side mark several circles of same size with the help of protractor. This size will be your reference size.
Cut out the circles with the help of paper cutter or scissors.
Now it will look like this :

These are the openings for keeping all your gift wraps or craft papers inside the box. Just roll it like small cylinders and then insert inside this. But obviously it is looking so dejected at the moment. So we will wrap it up with a bright colored wrap. See my box below:
And Ta Dah! NO COST! solution for all those gifts wrap you bought in the sale. I hope you will enjoy organizing your wraps in this Crafty way.

I have removed the lid for this shot. You can see the wraps are neatly piled up below and on top layer I have put my craft paper sheets. 
Enjoy and take care.

Crafty Flower


Hi there,
In our last post we discussed about storage boxes and in this post I'll show you how to make a beautiful paper flower.

You will need:

1- Wrapping Paper or craft paper.
2- Scissors.
3- Tape.
4- Stapler.


  • First cut a rectangle from the wrapping paper.
  • Fold it like a fan.
  • Secure the end with staple pin.
  • Cut the upper end in a slight wavy pattern.
  • Slowly open the leaves of the fan , it will form a flower.
  • With clear tape secure the edges.
  • Enjoy! I have used that flower to decorate my storage box. You can also use it to stick on gift box or other things. Do share your views about this post.

Fold it like a fan , than folding it half, staple at one end

Slowly open the fan in a circle and secure the ends with tape.

Flower ; Notice the curvy edges which are due to I cut the edges of the fan in a wavy manner after I pinned it.
Have fun,

Crafty Storage Box

Hi there,
  I was quite busy these days making my storage boxes presentable. It so happens that I own half a dozen storage boxes and every time I saw those sitting on top of my cupboard I got a bad impression. So, one day I decided let's make them pretty :) And this weekend I was busy wrapping those. I know some of you might come across this situation too so, I am sharing some neat ideas about making your own storage box or decorating an existing one. I will share mine shortly these are the ideas I found quite helpful.


  1. Empty cardboard boxes.
  2. Wrapping papers.
  3. Ribbons.
  4. Scissors.
  5. Tape.
  6. Clear glue.

Once you get a storage box/cardboard box. Decide what you gonna put into it. For e.g, You want to put all the festive decorations you have enthusiastically hung all over the house. If your storage box is for the spare decorations, choose a bright cheery wrapping paper for the covering. It will give the boxes a cool touch if you decorate these according to the items you will keep in these.



If you have some extra fabric lying around. You can wrap the boxes with it also. And use ribbons or thick strings and add handles too. I will share some sample pictures here which I have found on the internet.

So, quite cool aren't these? I can see there are countless possibilities to decorate our homely looking storage boxes. I will add my boxes tomorrow so stay tuned. :)

Note : I don't own these pictures. I simply found them on the internet and I have shared here so that you will get more ideas. And down is the picture of one of the box I wrapped up as a storage box.

So this is what I did :)

Have fun,

Crafty Jar

Hello readers,
 Hoping you all are in fit shape and best moods :) So for our first crafty project I have chosen the simplest one.


To make this you will need :

  1. Jar
  2. Yarn spools (Any color as in my case I have used Silver, Purple and Yellow).
  3. Glue
  4. Scissors 

STEP 1 :

First with the quantity of the yarn available to you and the size of your jar, think about a pattern .Like I chose 3 broad stripes for my design. You can make the bands narrow if you don't have that much spool of one color or if you have just one color you can wrap it on the whole jar also.
Take the jar and make sure you wipe it's surface with a clean cloth for better adherence of glue and yarn. Spread the glue on the jar. Don't apply it on the whole bottle but, apply first on a little area otherwise your hands will become messy or you might make the spool messy too.Now choose a color of yarn and start wrapping it around the bottle/jar. Wrap till you are satisfied with the length of the band. Note that wrapping needs to be tighten loose wrapping might slip and it will not give neat appearance.

In the second picture you can see I have wrapped 1/3rd portion of the jar. Then cut off the thread end and stick it firmly to the jar.

STEP 2 :

For step choose the second thread and start wrapping it in the same manner like Step1. When you get your desired length. Cut the thread and glue it firmly. And then start wrapping the third one. 

Finish :

As you can see in the end you will have no spool but a pretty jar. Let it dry for 30 minutes or so. As much time as your glue needs. Well although the jar is being wrapped up but if you have some little trinket or flower or stuff. You can stick it on the jar also. Like I used this trinket on mine.

Product finished and you will get this crafty jar.

I hope you enjoyed our first craft. Do share your views about this post.
Take care
