Ribbon and Wrapping Paper Tip

Happy Wednesday!!!
As scary as it is the holiday season is around the corner.  I don't know about you but I am gearing up for all the gift wrapping I am going to do in the next few months.  Not only do I have a lot of holiday gifts to wrap but I also have a handful of birthdays around the holidays that will also require some gift wrapping.  

I really like to keep my paper and ribbon organized and stored in a way that is easy to use and keeps it from getting ruined.  A few years ago I started creating a craft/wrapping area in my home.  Over the years it has changed from a closet to using an old entertainment center.  Wrapping paper is one of the hardest things to store, because there aren't many options due to its size.  You can either stick it in the back of a closet (been there done that), buy one of those expensive plastic storage containers for wrapping paper, or you can hang it like I have.  

I take an inexpensive tension rod to hang my wrapping paper and ribbon.  I have placed the rods in an entertainment center you could take the same idea and add the rod to a closet.  The rod will allow you to easily unroll the amount of paper or ribbon you need, it keeps the paper and ribbon organized, and it keeps everything from getting smashed.  

This holiday season make your own wrapping center.  Pick up a tension rob and hang your ribbon and wrapping paper.  I think you will love this way of organizing your ribbon and wrapping paper as much as I do!
