It's a Wrap----Dispenser!

Can you believe Thanksgiving is only a few days away? Well I've been preparing a little for my favorite "cooking holiday" by tweaking some of my kitchen cabinets and drawers. The other day I shared my cabinet under the sink. As I was beginning to organize it, I first began by deciding what was most important and made the most sense in that particular cabinet. Originally I kept aluminum foil and other kitchen paper kinds of things inside. But the more I thought about it, not only did they take up a lot of space, but I wasn't sure how safe it was to have food wrapping kinds of things next to cleaning products. Long story short, I decided to move them to another cabinet. 

Oh but wait. I didn't just stop there. I decided to make very simple dispensers thanks to a post I found (but can't seem to locate now :( on Pinterest. If you'd like to follow me, do so here.)



I mentioned they were super easy didn't I? That's because all it required were the food wraps/papers in their boxes and some adhesive hooks. (Found these at Bed Bath and Beyond.)


Many of these types of boxes actually have little push tabs--I'm assuming for this very sort of idea.



I needed to cut a little extra to fit my hook around to the back--but you get the idea.

Once both hooks were in place, I just peeled off the backs and stuck it to the inside of the cabinet door. (Before I did this I made sure the cabinet would have no problem opening and closing.)


I also left the boxes on so that I could tear the paper/wrap with the sharp edges from the boxes.


Here's a better view to see how they are hanging.


And there you have it--and just in time to start cooking!

  1. Great idea! I will have to try this. Right now, I just store my wrap rolls in a wicker basket on top of the fridge. But this would be much more handy! Thanks for the tip!

    1. I used to have mine stored in a similar way. This way I no longer have to pull them out. They are all ready to go! Thanks for commenting! :)

  2. The tabs on the ends of the boxes are actually to keep the rolls from pulling out of the boxes when you pull the wrap. Most people don't know that. I saw it on Rachael Ray not too long ago!!!

  4. Hi, It looks great! Now, my question to you. Once they are finish, how do you go pull them off? Thanks, V.

    1. Hi V. With some gentle maneuvering they are able to come off and on. Because I made large enough holes in the boxes they come off fairly easily. I will say, at least with the hooks that I found, you need to hold the box a bit while tearing off what you need. My husband sort of man handled it and one of the hooks started to come off a bit. I was able to put it back and all is well but you can't pull crazy hard. Just sayin'. Thanks for your comment!
