Wrapping Paper Cart

If you have dreams of organized wrapping paper dancing in your head along with sugar plums, then this wrapping paper organizer cart  will make all your Night before Christmas dreams come true!

I know that I am going to cause all sorts of jealousy with what I’m going to tell you, but..Momma got a zippy new set of wheels!

It can go from 0 to 1 in 10 minutes

It has great cargo space and it comes in a fun and snappy candy apple red.Storage area for tape and miscellaneous wrapping doo dads on my wrapping cart

Yes my friends, I have taken my gift wrapping game from this mess…

To this snappy little Wrapping Paper Organizer Cart.Wrapping Paper Cart keeps my supplies organized and easily accessible AND my scissors can't walk away.

For MANY years, we dealt with a long narrow plastic box whose sole purpose was to keep and organize wrapping paper and wrapping necessities.  It didn’t do great at it’s sole purpose and resulted in this year after year.

There just wasn’t a place for everything and an easy way to access everything. So I took matters into my own hands and designed a customized Wrapping Paper Organizer that was truly functional. I was inspired by CoCo’s mobile wrapping cart a couple of years ago and finally took the time to noodle through what I needed.

The paper stands up straight in the Wrapping Paper Organizer; you can easily see what you have and easily access what you need. I have all my gift bags tucked inside one larger gift bag inside the cart.

The glove box storage up front holds my tape and random wrapping doo dads…Tape and wrapping doo dads are tucked in the front storage unit of my wrapping paper cart.

while the cargo storage in the back holds folded sheets of tissue paper and a folder of gift tags and pens.Sheets of gift tags stay in this blue binder, which is stored along with folded sheets of tissue paper in the back storage compartment of my wrapping paper organizer.

But, perhaps the most cherished, invaluable, can’t live without, rocks my world detail of my new Wrapping Paper Organizer is the retractable scissor holder! Retractable Scissors...one of my favorite details of my wrapping paper cart.This little gem will stretch 4 feet to allow ample room for cutting paper, BUT will prevent the inevitable ‘disappearing scissors’ phenomenon that occurred WHENEVER I would sit down to wrap gifts.

I can’t even tell you how much I’m loving my new wheels! 

Shockingly, I didn’t have any of these things lying around the house so I did need to purchase everything. But you may already have some of these or might want to customize your cart to suit your wrapping needs. 

Here’s exactly what I used:

    This is too funny! I have a wrapping paper hoarding problem. I always buy it end of year on crazy clearance. Funny story when I move to this house someone had stuffed my wrapping paper into an upside down plant stand. I thought it was so genius I have kept it that way for years!

    I love how this organizes the paper, but what do you do with it for the other 50 weeks of the year. The advantage of the flat box is that it’s easy to store under a bed or on a high closet shelf. BTW, love the sight and just joined.

      Thanks Kirsten…I hear what you’re saying. Right now we have a large attic, so it’s really easy for me to wheel it in there for the other 11 months. But, we are looking to downsize and I think then I will use it year round, with all of my wrapping paper instead of just Christmas wrap.

      I am so glad to have you on board my friend.

      Hugs, Lynn
