7- Christmas hacks – DIY wrapping paper holder.  Take an old toilet paper roll.  Cut a slit down the middle. Wrap it in foil (just to make it prettier).  Now it is a good ‘holder’ for your wrapping paper!

8-  Make a tape Grab Tab.    Help yourself by making the tape easier to grab with this little trick.  Use your bread-clip to place on the edge of the tape.
