I have a small area in which I do a lot of crafts. My collection of wrapping paper seems to grow this time of the year. Here's a way I make my small area more efficient and a space saver with cup hooks, wood dowels and plastic or metal chains. I suspend the chains underneath my shelves and run my dowels through the chains. The chains are attached underneath the counter with cup hooks.

After years of juggling with my many wrapping and tissue papers, gift bags, and ribbons I designated one of my rarely used pieces of luggage to hold these items. It is easy to take out into a room to wrap gifts too! Everything in one place.

Cleaning out storage and closets and I found a whole bunch of wrapping paper that I didn't realize I had! To keep your wrapping paper neat and tidy, you can put them in a box. I used a Pampers wipes box and it fit a generous amount of wrapping paper ~ 16 rolls!

I created a special space for storing tubes of gift wrap and ribbon. I put a shower curtain rod 4 feet up from the floor in my storage closet. Then, using old pantyhose, I put a tube of gift wrap or ribbon in each leg and tie it using ribbon at the top.

I use my tall brass umbrella "bucket" to store rolls of wrapping paper. All of my umbrellas are the small, compact type that get lost in the stand, so it works well for storing the wrapping paper.
