My craft room/office closet is pretty deep and it has about an 8 inch gap between the door and the wall, so I decided two of these adjustable tension rod’s from Walmart would be a cost effective and useful solution for the wrapping paper. I lined up my wrapping paper and situated the two rods to hold them in place. Using two rods ensured that my smaller rolls of wrapping paper would be secure plus it provided additional support. Already looking so organized! 🙂
Then, I purchased a couple of these Bygel toilet roll hooks from IKEA. I thought that the length of the hook would be perfect for holding gift wrap bags plus it would take advantage of the vertical space above the wrapping paper. We used the gift bags as a guide and secured the two hooks with an anchor as the bags can get a little heavy.
Then, I grouped my gift bags by occasion. (Wedding, Baby, Birthday, Christmas and Misc.)
I used the biggest bag in the group to hold all the other bags.
Then I hung all my grouped bags on one of my hooks. Now, when I need a bag for a wedding, I can just grab the stack of wedding bags and pick the right size. This is so much better than going through all my bags to find the right occasion and size!
I usually wrap gifts with ribbon, but I have a small collection of raffia and bows as well as gift labels. I collected all these items, as well as scissors and tape and placed them in a gift bag.
I hung the bags of tissue paper and accessories on the other hook.
Now, all of my gift wrap lives together, is tucked away neatly and is easy to access. This turned out so much better than I had hoped. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that my gift wrap is organized and that it is no longer taking up valuable real estate in other parts of the house. Major WIN-WIN in my mind. 🙂
