Wrapping Paper Storage

Step 7: Wrap It Up - Paper & Supplies

Wrapping paper storage makes the chore of gift wrapping a lot easier! Good wrapping paper storage means that all your wrapping paper and supplies all in one place. There are many different wrapping paper storage products on the market today to help you get organized. For example, Rubbermaid and Sterilite both make plastic bins designed to hold rolls of wrapping paper. Some of these bins even feature separate compartments to hold ribbons and bows, too.

Another option is to create your own Wrap Supply Hamper out of a tall clothes hamper, like this:

A Wrap Supply Hamper is a way you can create a special holder for gift wrap and other supplies out of an ordinary laundry hamper! This is a great option if you're limited on space. Depending on the size and style of laundry hamper you choose, you may be able to store it in a tight space, such as a small closet or underneath a bed. If you are fortunate enough to have plenty of space in your home, AND if you wrap many different gifts throughout the year, you might want to consider setting up a wrap station in your home. An old desk can easily be transformed into a wrap station. Here are a few ideas to help you get started:
  • Use a horizontal paper towel holder to hang spools of ribbons for easy access
  • If you have a lot of bows, buy a set of storage drawers, like the ones shown in the picture, and then separate your bows by color
  • Put rolls of paper on end in a tall laundry hamper or other bin beside the desk
  • Keep other supplies such as scissors, ribbon crimping tools, cards, tape, and glue close by in a basket or small bin on top of the desk

When organizing wrap supplies, don't forget to organize your ribbons and bows! One of the biggest problems with storing bows and ribbons is that they are prone to getting crushed. Try to store them in bins or containers no deeper than 10-12". Anything deeper than that, and you'll likely be digging to find what you need, which could also destroy your bows. It may also be helpful to sort bows and ribbons by color, particularly if you have a lot of them. Stacking bins or boxes made of clear plastic can be especially helpful in this task. Another idea is to use a set of clear plastic drawers, one for holding each color or color family.
