I found this really fun, vintage gift wrap paper cutter in my parent’s attic when I was visiting Maine over Father’s Day weekend. Join me here to see more of our recently inherited Coastal Maine.
I just love everything about it! This was an item they saved from a family-owned gift shop from over 40 years ago on the coast of Maine, Coupe’s Gift Shop.
This is exactly how I found it with the brown paper and all.
I love it as is however, I really wanted to jazz it up a bit with some vintage wrapping paper that I could actually use.
I tried online options like Amazon and Etsy and realized quickly that this was going to be a difficult find.
Until I stumbled into an antique store in southern Maine that had a bin of vintage wrapping paper! I chose this powder blue and gold paper to match the room and the gift wrap cutter.
I did have to cut the roll to fit the spool and then I wrapped it around the brown paper spool that came with the paper cutter.
