Wrapping Paper Caddy

Wrapping paper is a pain to store.

While you could always throw away any left-overs, that seems unduly wasteful as it's sold in rolls which are a lot bigger than a typical present. It's also handy to keep some around for "emergency" birthdays, or when the new roll turns out not to be quite enough because you've been overly generous.

Here's my solution - a wrapping paper caddy!

Made from MDF, this caddy holds up to 6 rolls with room for some rolls of sticky tape. It has a handle at each end to make it easier to carry to where you wish to wrap.

Why the strange shape? Well, it fits in the bottom corner under the stairs - making good use of the inaccessible bottom triangle. Felt pads are used to so it glides nicely along the laminate flooring I've fitted inside.
