Weekend Project: Get Organized to Wrap

December 7, 2012

wrapping

With the holidays in full swing there probably isn’t a lot of time for weekend projects, but this one will hopefully help with your sanity for the next few weeks. I love to wrap gifts, but I often find myself in the middle of a big pile of ribbon, wrapping paper, tape, and name tags, while constantly misplacing my scissors and pens!  This weekend maybe take a few minutes to set up a gift wrapping station which will hopefully save you some time this holiday season. Here’s what you need.

Wrapping Oraganization
 

ONE: Inexpensive frames are easy to find (you may even have some lying around) that can easily help create a set up like the picture above. Use this Crafty Teacher Lady tutorial to help./ TWO: I saw lots of pictures of paper towel holders to hold ribbon and make it easy to roll off. Genius!/ THREE: Metal lantern hooks can be hung from the dowels and also hold tape and bags of stick on ribbons./ FOUR: Wooden dowels can be found at Home Depot and easily attached to the frames to hold multiple rolls of wrapping paper. /FIVE: Magnetic metal strips like these from Crate and Barrel, are great for keeping your scissors and pens where you need them, instead of under all the paper.
