Wrap Up the Gift Wrap

There are always creative ways to organize and store your items. Coming up with something a little different can make all your work a show piece. Today we will focus on gift wrapping supplies. Where do you store your stash? Do you have everything you need in one spot?

An old dresser works well to store supplies. Just think of what could fit in a drawer. You could use one drawer for cards, tape and scissors, one drawer for bows and ribbon, one drawer for folded paper, one for rolls of paper, and one drawer for gift boxes. How about small gifts, or mailing supplies like packing tape, bubble wrap and mailing envelopes. Your “gift dresser” can live in a guest room and no one will ever know it’s wrapping designation. You can even use the guest bed to do your wrapping.

Maybe there’s space under that bed. This is great idea as well. Purchase an under-the-bed box that is long enough for paper rolls and limit yourself to the number that fit in the box. You can have a second box for bows and other supplies. So easy to use and they take up so little space.

If you don’t have an extra dresser or under the bed space, how about a bucket? Sometimes I suggest a kitchen size trash can as well. They hold rolls of paper perfectly and you can use a Bucket Boss or similar item (or make your own) for other supplies on the side of your bucket or can. This storage method will allow you to move your wrapping projects to any room you wish.
