Getting organized is best achieved one step at a time.

Figure out what you want to tackle and then go for it. With Christmas just behind us, I feel the need to get my gift wrap supplies into better order.

If you’re like me, you have a ton of gift wrap supplies. I am just drawn to them. But all of that can start to add up and suddenly…

You have a huge mess on your hands!

But it doesn’t have to be that way. A gift wrap station can help you keep all of these supplies in neat order and keep everything within easy reach when you need it.

You will need just a few supplies to create a gift wrap station:

  • Box or bin to keep all of the supplies together (Old Time Pottery)
  • A couple of medium-sized open containers like these cute ice buckets (Old Time Pottery)
  • Sugar shaker (Old Time Pottery)
  • Mason jar (Old Time Pottery)
  • Small bucket (Old Time Pottery)
  • Napkin holder (Old Time Pottery)
  • Mason jar daisy lid (local craft store)
  • Rubber bands

jars

Place curling ribbon in the Mason jar and replace the lid with the daisy lid. Poke the end of the ribbon through the lid to easily pull it out and cut off what you need. The jar is large enough to hold at least 3 different ribbons which can each be laced through the daisy lid.

A roll of twine will fit perfectly in the sugar shaker. Poke the end of the twine through the sugar shaker hole for use.

A small plastic bucket is perfect for holding gift tags, pens, and scissors.

Place gift bags in the napkin holder. I like to keep an assortment of plain bags that can be used for any occasion.

Wrap ends of small gift wrap rolls with a rubber band to keep the paper under control. Place in the ice bucket to keep all of the rolls together.

Add bows to the other ice bucket.

Add all of the containers to the big bin.

Start with the ice buckets since they are largest. Tuck tissue paper behind the buckets and against the back wall of the bin. In front of the ice buckets add the napkin holder full of gift bags. In the front of the bin add the tag bucket, twine, and curling ribbon.

Make a cute tag to hang on the front of your gift wrap station if you like.

So simple and so refreshingly organized!

Some tips:
Box up your excess gift wrap supplies and keep them out of the way. Refill the gift wrap station as needed. Keep the gift wrap station on a shelf within easy reach for when it’s needed.

This gift wrap station should be easy to keep maintained all year round!
