Materials and Tools:

old wrapping paper
measuring tape
scissors
nubs of used candles

Steps:

1. Traditionally, wrapping papers from bridal and baby showers were saved to use as drawer liners. Use the measuring tape to measure the dimensions of the drawers of a dresser.

2. Cut the wrapping paper to size and insert it into the drawers.

3. Rub the side of a candle along the edges of the drawers; also rub it along the drawer runners inside the chest. This will keep the drawers sliding smoothly.
