Organizing gift wrap may seem tedious and difficult. But, let me tell you from personal experience that organizing wrapping paper and supplies has taken the once difficult task of wrapping to new heights of enjoyment!
Are your wrapping supplies scattered everywhere? Is it difficult and time consuming to make a gift beautiful?
If you answered “yes” then you are just like me! Don’t worry – there is hope with my tips and ideas to help you in organizing gift wrap and your wrapping supplies.
I love beautifully wrapped presents. I think it really shows the thought that went into the gift. Young and old alike enjoy receiving gifts that look nice.
But, that means you need to know how to organize wrapping paper and other supplies otherwise, it will be frustrating and time consuming.
I shop after Christmas sales (as well as, other holidays) at Hobby Lobby when the wrapping paper and supplies are 665% – 90% off!
By shopping sales, I am able to purchase wrapping paper for all occasions at a fraction of the cost. However, I have had to spend time learning how to and actually organizing gift wrap or it ends up looking tattered and frayed.
Organizing Gift Wrap
I got tired of my wrapping paper looking old when it was new and not being able to find what I knew I had purchased because it was under some bed somewhere!
I used to have the rolls standing on end in a decorative umbrella stand. While it looked nice and the rolls were all together, the ends were tattered and torn.
So, here are ways I have found for organizing my wrapping paper and other supplies to keep them looking new and conveniently placed.
1. Under Bed Storage Boxes
Both are sized for the length of wrapping paper rolls and keep the paper fresh and new looking. Plus, it is out of the way and I have them all under one bed for easy access.
2. Storage Boxes with Dividers
These storage boxes have divided compartments with place to hold bows, gift bags etc. Others have a big compartment on the bottom and a divided tray on top.
3. Hanging Storage
There are quite a few options available online. This hanging gift wrap organizer has double sides giving even more storage. These systems have separate compartments for wrapping paper and other gift wrapping supplies. They can hang on the rod of a closet or from a hook on the back of the door.
4. Have a Gift Closet
If space is available, organizing gift wrap by creating a gift closet is a great option. Gift paper, bows, ribbons, gift boxes, baskets and tissue paper can all be kept in one place.
Ribbons and bows can go into separate containers and placed on shelves for easy access.
I use the under the bed storage boxes (#1) for organizing wrapping paper. That, along with a portion of a gift closet (#4) keeps my items together in one room.
I put containers on a closet shelf to hold other supplies, such as, gift bags in one, tape, scissors and gift tags in another. Bows and ribbon in yet another.
Organizing Wrapping Paper to Fit Your Need
The key is to find a system that works for your need with the space you have. You can spend a lot of money on a storage system or you can stay within your budget.
Like I said, I use a combination of ways. But, it is organized and all in one room. For me, organizing gift wrap happens in our guest room – under the bed and in the closet.
Getting your home and your life organized will give you peace of mind and relieve stress – try it!
