The Magic of A Gift Wrapping Station
A well-organized, fully-stocked gift-wrapping station creates joy and excitement around holidays and birthdays! To create your own gift-wrapping station, follow these simple steps.
You Need A Gift Wrap Organizer
The first thing you need in your gift wrapping station is a gift wrap organizer.
Look for one that is sleek and fits perfectly in any closet. You could even hang this up on a coat rack or suspend it from the ceiling so it’s within hand’s reach of your gift-wrapping station.
Organize Your Gift Wrap Accessories – Ribbons & Gift Tags
The next thing to organize is your gift wrapping accessories – namely, the ribbons and gift tags. These are things that put the finishing touch on your gifts. If you keep your supply of accessories well-stocked, you will look forward to wrapping your gifts.
Here are a few creative solutions for organizing your ribbons.
Tension Rods for Spools of Ribbons
Tension rods are inexpensive and a fantastic storage solution for all your ribbons. The best part about tension rods is you can put them anywhere there are two columns.
Sew Many Ways uses tension rods to organize her ribbons in between the legs of her crafting table. It’s such a creative solution.
DIY Spice Racks for Ribbons
Have you ever put together a DIY spice rack? It’s one of the simpler DIY projects you can do. Ginger Snap Crafts discovered that spools of ribbon fit perfectly in the spice rack. And there is even space for the ribbons to feed through so you don’t have to take the entire ribbon down to use it.
Unsharpened Pencils & Erasers As Ribbon Storage
One of the most creative storage ideas for ribbons is using unsharpened pencils and erasers! This idea is actually genius and uses items most people already have around the house. Then, you can easily put the spools of ribbon in a drawer or box.
Gift Wrapping Tools – Tape and Scissors
After you organize all your gift wrap and accessories, it’s time to organize and stock all your tools. It is extremely frustrating to get all ready to wrap your gifts, only to realize you are out of tape.
Keep your tools within hands-reach of your station. Use canisters or clear drawers to hold your gift wrapping tools so you can see when they are missing or need replenished.
Gift Bags & Tissue Paper
Recycling and reusing gift bags saves you money and helps cut down on waste. Organize your gift bags by type and size so they are easy to find when you need them.
Tissue paper can be reused as well, but be careful when opening your gifts so you don’t crumple the paper and make it look too used. Then you can organized your tissue paper by color.
A beautiful solution is to hang up tissue paper on hangers so you can see the colors and grab the ones you need quickly.
Don’t Forget the Cards
The final touch for every gift is the card. Blank cards are the easiest idea because you can use them all year long. Organize cards by season, holiday, and for whom they are directed.
Keep the cards in a box with dividers so you can grab them quickly and see when they need replaced.
Bonus Items for Gift Wrapping Station
After you have all of the above items you have all you need for a great gift wrapping station! Do you want to take your station from great to amazing? Then don’t forget to include a few of these items.
Hand-writing cards makes them so much more heartfelt. Felt-tip or gel pens are just more fun and enjoyable to use. These are bonus items because any pen will do, but a fun and bright pen just makes the entire experience extra wonderful.
There are some bright and cheery bows that add a bit of pizazz to any gift you wrap. Stock your gift wrapping station with a few entertaining pieces of flair.
Finally, make sure you have your favorite playlist and speaker ready! Gift wrapping is a ton more amusing when you have music. Hum, sing along, and let your mood fly.
