Gift Wrap Bucket

A couple of years ago, my mom and her husband made gift buckets for their daughters and daughters-in-law and gave them to us on Thanksgiving Day. At that time, the buckets were full of Christmas wrapping paper, gift tags, Scotch tape, ribbon, scissors and other supplies. Because I am a bit of a Christmas freak, I put my bucket to good use that year.

Since then, I use my bucket to hold a variety of wrapping paper, gift bags, tissue and other items necessary for gift giving. I love it, not only because I have everything at my fingertips when I'm in a hurry to wrap a present, but because it takes up minimal space and it is portable!

If you are interested in making a gift bucket for yourself, Martha Stewart has a great tutorial and video reference on her website.

That is such a good idea!!! I have a similar thing for each of the kids that I use to store all their crafts...it holds all their stuff so they can just pull out the bucket and start drawing, gluing, cutting.....

This just gave me an idea to recycle my paper clutter at home and turn it into a gift wrap. I think this will definitely eliminate all my annoying paper mess at home.
