My NEW Gift Wrapping Station

Posted: August 25th, 2009 | Author: Katie | Filed under: Simple Solutions |

Well, Laurel does it again. I’m telling you - this is one of the greatest and easiest ideas ever, so of course I had to borrow it! At first, as I read her post, I thought, “How lucky is she that she has an area to have a gift wrapping station?!” Isn’t it sweet and simple?

Then it hit me - I do too!! I was so excited to head to Home Depot and buy my supplies.

My List:

Hooks                             2 @ $2.69 = 6 dollars (let’s just round so I don’t have to use my calculator)

Dowel Rods                  $0.89 and $1.49 = $2.50

Wrapping Paper         $2.99 = $3.00

Ribbon                             3 @ $0.77 = $3.00 (I also had a couple of my own)

Grand Total…              A little under $15.00!

It also gave me a chance to empty out a basket that contained all my bags, tissues paper and ribbons.

…and after shifting some of my paint cans to the side, they fit nicely in the cabinets below.

I did have to alter Laurel’s concept a bit in order to fit some of my wrapping ribbon that didn’t fit on my paper towel holder.

And I’m sure I looked pretty crazy at Home Depot holding wrapping paper and ribbons and trying to measure it all out but I’ve looked crazier.

Thanks again Laurel!! Can you think of a space you could create your own wrapping station?

Bring on the Birthdays!
