{organizing with style} 10 Genius Wrapping Paper Organizing Ideas

Tuesday, December 27, 2016

I don't do a lot of shopping right after the holidays, but I always try to hit a few of my favorite stores for clearance wrapping paper, ribbons, and bows to restock for the next year. I especially like choosing wrapping paper with non-traditional Christmas colors and classic patterns, like stripes and plaids, that are versatile enough to be used for birthdays and other holidays as well. 


This also makes this the perfect time to get all of those gift wrap supplies organized! Today I've rounded up some of my favorite gift wrap and greeting card organizing ideas to help you find the one that best fits your needs, starting with how I transformed a part of my guest room closet into gift wrap central, followed my lots of other creative organizing solutions.

GIFT WRAP ORGANIZATION IN A CLOSET

The transformation of my guest room closet from cluttered disaster to organized bliss all started with the rolling wrapping paper/ribbon cart that I bought on an incredible sale! It's perfect for holding my seasonal wrapping paper and lots of ribbon, and the drawers are ideal for folded tissue paper and bows. You can read all the details about how I organized the cart in this post.

Rolling wrapping paper cart

I added my favorite stacking drawers on the floor on either side of the rolling wrapping cart. The large drawers on the left hold extra ribbon and gift wrap embellishments, and the drawers on the right hold small gift boxes and containers.

I used three laundry hampers on top of the larger set of drawers to hold extra wrapping paper, which I sorted by season and color.

Hampers for gift wrap storage and organization

On the other side of the rolling wrapping cart, I hung a gift bag organizer from the closet rod. I save every bag that we receive a gift in, so I rarely ever have to buy a bag. Instead, I can just shop my collection from this double-sided organizer.

I also used the back of the guest room closet door to organize all of our greeting cards, stationery, gift tags, decorative tape, and extra bows. For this back of door storage, I used my favorite adjustable door rack system.
