TIP Tuesday {Organization}: Gift Wrapping Station Inspiration

     I can just imagine what it would be like to walk into my spare bedroom, open the walk-in closet where all my gift wrapping supplies are beautifully housed in clear jars of ribbon, shelves of gift boxes, and wrapping paper neatly attached to the wall on rods to they easily can be rolled out to just the right length.  While I am daydreaming, I might as well add a crisp table where my scissor variety as well as my colors of the rainbow pen collection are all conveniently at reach housed in vintage wire baskets all accessible from my cream cushioned chair.    And did I mention extra space to conveniently conceal all the gifts I have already purchased?  While this luxury definitely makes my dream list, the truth is that space-saving gift wrapping stations are much more my reality...at least at the moment.

There are lots of hidden spaces to keep your 
Gift Wrapping Supplies neatly organized 
so you can easily access them all at once.

How about under the bed?  Pull it out when needed and then it disappears nicely when you are done.

and store your wrapping paper to the unused side as well.

Maybe you even have a little bit of space to store a Gift Wrapping Station on wheels...rolling it to wherever you need it!  Or what about a bucket?

Think about using wall space in your craft room, office or extra bedroom.  {And if you don't use brown packaging paper as gift wrap,

 What about re-purposing a suitcase?  It's like your own little present to open...while you are going to wrap a present!

And maybe you are even lucky enough to dedicate a couple of shelves or drawers in the kitchen, laundry room or even in a closet to your supplies.

Regardless of where you store your supplies, you can make the process even quicker by including a few essentials: 
scissors, tape {double-sided as well as regular}, and a nice pen 
all dedicated to your station.
