Pinterest Idea - organizing gift wrap supplies

 Pinterest is intimidating.  So many creative minds, so many crafty people, so many ideas...I can't focus.  I saw this photo and thought it was actually practical, not just pretty.  I purchased a $30 wire organizer from Target and R mounted it on the door of our office.  The inspiration:

And mine:
Not quite as "neat" and staged as the inspiration photo.  
I learned that I need more wrapping paper to fill up my bottom rack!  My supply is low right now, usually I purchase paper from my niece and nephew to support their school and they haven't had the annual fundraiser yet.

My best friend and the matron of honor in my wedding made these mason jars with the pretty bows as decoration for my bridal shower this past spring.  She gave them to me and I wanted a way to display them.  Now they hold everything from gift tags to thread to picture hanging supplies.
I love it!  Now all my gift wrapping supplies are in one place.  I'm wondering if I have any other uses for these nifty little organization racks.

    1. My collection was stuffed in a closet and took up a lot of space. This is much better.

  2. Right now I just have a gift wrap "bag", so this idea is perfect timing. I really like how yours turned out!

    1. Thanks! After my wedding I had tons of tissue and gift bags to reuse but they took up a whole closet. I couldn't wait to find a better way to organize it all.

    1. My MOH did a great job on the bows. She used them to line the steps to her mothers house (where she held the shower) and she put little tea lights in them. It was stunning.
