on the back of a door!
I used to store my gift wrap in a large under-the-bed box. Wrapping gifts was such a pain because I had to lug that big box out from under my dusty bed and dig through everything to find what I wanted. I also had way too much gift wrap because I usually just bought more instead of looking through the mess of what I already had. But then I saw this gift wrap organizer in the Feb 2011 BHG magazine, and knew it was a solution to my problem.
I started with this small organizer from Walmart. It's original purpose is to store foil and plastic wrap.
But it fits wrapping paper just right!
I used elastic with 3m tabs to hold the gift wrap in place when someone (my kids) fling the door open.
I used a large organizer from Home Depot for the ribbon spools. And the best part is that I can lace the ribbon through the wire to just pull out as much as I need. I don't even have to take the spool off the shelf.
I used a small metal bucket for scissors, tape, pens and gift tags.
It's so much nicer to have it out in the open where I can see what I have. And wrapping gifts is a breeze now.
