I was sick and tired of rifling through bins trying to find the tissue paper for the gift bag, a card, and some darn scissors. I had pinned some ideas of wrapping stations on the back of doors, so I couldn’t stand it one more minute one Saturday morning so I stopped everything, and went to work in my little craft corner of my husband’s office downstairs. “Mom, can we have jolly ranchers and rice for lunch?” Sure. “Mom, can you forget about me playing wii all morning?” you bet. Can I make a craft out of glue, powedered sugar, grass, and legos? go for it.
They love it when I’m in the nothins gonna stop me zone.
Here’s my version:
I love using buckets for gift baskets and used some inexpensive coat hooks to hang them. For tissue paper, I hung a dowel on two mug hooks. It easily comes out to grab a few sheets.
I used a cardboard organizer to keep cards, little bags, tags and gift sacks.
On the top right hook, I have a little tin basket where I keep my very own tape, scissors, and pen. Shhhh! None of my little ones can reach this one.
Below, I just used simple coat hooks to hang gift bags, and a white wire kitchen organizer (from Walmart) that is supposed to be used for tin foil, plastic wrap, etc. Instead, we use it for rolls of wrapping paper.
The only thing I really paid for was the white wire organizer. Everything else I found around the house. I’m suddenly in the mood to wrap a gift! I’ll show you the progress of my little craft corner/table eventually, but right now I’m still smack in the middle of the upstairs kids’ bathroom, my boys’ rooms, and Hailey’s room. Focus, Melissa….focus.
How do you organize your gift wrap stuff??
