Easy & Practical Gift Wrap Organization

Easy & Practical Gift Wrap Organization

Happy Friday, y’all! It’s Danielle again – I blog over at Sew Much Crafting! In case you don’t know this about me, I’m pretty frugal and practical. I hate spending money on things when I could repurpose something else to suit my needs. You can see proof of that through today’s post!
 
Gift wrapping supplies can be so awkward to organize – and easy to collect! My gift wrapping collection includes wrapping paper, shirt boxes, gift bags, tissue paper, ribbon and more!
 
 
I use a plastic milk crate to hold all of my gift wrapping supplies. Inside my milk crate is a small divided box. I found mine at a thrift store – but you could use practically anything! That’s the beauty of  being practical! Tip: You probably need a box that is at least six inches tall – it’s going to help hold the wrapping paper up!
 
Then use some baker’s twine to hold your gift bags in an upward position. I tied my twine in the back left corner of my milk crate, stood the gift bags up, and tied the twine on the right side of the milk crate {toward the middle} with a decent amount of tension. You want the twine to be tight enough to hold the gift bags in place!
 
Here’s a view from the top. See how the twine is holding everything in place?
 
My curling ribbon fit perfectly between the gift bags and the outside of the milk crate – and my smaller shirt boxes fit on the left side of the crate.
 
And on top, I laid my gift basket paper shreddings! Here’s another tip: Store your “leftover” paper shreddings in a zipper bag to keep them from making a mess all over your house!
 
And there you have it! An easy {and practical} way to organize your gift wrapping supplies! Hope it helps keep you sane – I know it’s been a huge help to me!
 
I’d love for you to come visit me! You can find me sharing craftsorganization and money saving tips, sewing projects, and pictures from everyday life over at Sew Much Crafting! Hope you’ll grab a cup of coffee and head my way!
