Wrapping Paper as Drawer Lining

Many times I have thought there must be a cheaper and easier way to line drawers/cabinets. With my young toddler daughters determined to help, I began using inexpensive wrapping paper.


If you fold it to fit the intended space, then there is no need for scissors. Personally, this is my favorite part, no need to fear injury. Using inexpensive wrapping paper (printed side facing up) allows you many decorative possibilities. You can use the unprinted side of the wrapping paper as is, or as an extra special activity, ask your young children (play date friends included) to help with an "art project".

First, temporarily anchor the blank side of wrapping paper to the floor or table. Then allow your child/children a variety of colored crayons to create their drawings. Finally, take completed art masterpieces and place at intended drawers or cabinets. Crayons are the perfect medium for this project. They are naturally waterproof, thus protecting your children's artwork. They also won't be absorbed or run when wet. During the holidays, my family and friends get a kick out of opening cabinets/drawers, just to see what "surprise" look has been chosen. Also the major eco-friendly plus is that old wrapping papers can go right into your recycle bin.
