Of all the items in your craft area, rolls of paper are one of the most difficult to store. Because they are so long and thin it is hard to find a place where they will fit and they easily fall over, unravel, roll around, and get creased.
However, if you can find an unwanted bar stool and turn it upside down, you have found yourself the perfect storage solution. You can hang gift bags on the legs and use one of those bags to hold sticky tape, scissors, cards, and ribbons.
I have bought pants hangers from the thrift store and I use them to hang all my wrapping paper that I have received with gifts. By hanging up the paper, it stays it better shape and it is easier to get to it when I need it. Hang your wrapping paper or bags in different categories like Christmas, Children, Weddings etc.

This year when I wrapped presents, I found a small basket big enough to hold tape, scissors, markers, gift tags and curling ribbon. I set the basket by my side and when I had used an item I put it right back in the basket.
With boxing day sales ahead of me I know I'm going to have a lot of extra wrapping paper that needs to be stored away until next Christmas. I recently saw a gift wrap organizer that hangs in the closet and I thought it was a great idea - except that it cost almost $25.
We crafters and Moms know that the months fly and we blink and another holiday is upon us. After Christmas gifts have been given, I separate tags, paper, ribbon, and other left-overs into a few categories.
If you have a place to install it, a tension curtain rod works well for organizing and storing ribbon and wrapping paper. This is a page about tension rod crafting ribbon and wrapping paper holder.
Wrapping paper is notorious for unrolling. Finding a way to prevent this without wrinkling the paper too much can be a bit of a task. This is a page about keeping Christmas wrap rolls from unrolling.
Having leftover wrapping paper after the holidays is common in many households. Almost everyone needs a place for storing wrapping paper.
