Have you ever wished that you could have all of your gift wrapping supplies sorted, stored and organized? We created our own gift wrap station using an Origami Craft Cart. Best of all – it can be reorganized just in time for Christmas!
Creating a beautifully wrapped gift adds a special touch to any occasion. Having to drag everything out and find a space on your kitchen table? Then it becomes a real chore. Origami to the rescue! We turned the Origami Craft Cart in to a gift wrap station that takes gift giving to a whole new level. Best of all, this wheeled cart is portable so you can store it in a closet when not in use.
DIY Gift wrap station
The cart is very easy to assemble. It took me less than five minutes and everything I needed was in the box when it arrived. Click here for step by step instructions on putting your cart together. I keep mine filled with “every day” gift wrap all year long, but come Christmastime it turns in to my one stop shop for wrapping paper, ribbon, gift bags, tags and more. Being able to see everything neatly organized stops me from overbuying but also makes it easy for me to know what I need more of (tape! always!).

HOW TO ORGANIZE YOUR GIFT WRAPPING CART
(Head to the bottom of the post to see how I organize my gift wrapping cart the rest of the year!) The cart has six drawers and two shelves (now three!!!), which means I have lots of room to store my gift wrapping supplies. On my Christmas cart I store my assorted tins and baskets on the top shelf.
The second shelf fits my long gift wrap rolls beautifully. It prevents them from getting flattened and makes it easy to see what I have on hand.
The top four drawers allow me to sort all of my supplies by type – tissue paper, cards, package toppers etc. I tend to have a lot of loose tags laying around, so the clear plastic bins are perfect for keeping them all together and visible. Thanks to the two deep drawers at the bottom of the cart I can also store my bulkier items (and things I have the most of) like gift bags and boxes of every shape and size.
These drawers have so much room they fit a ton of my coordinating ribbon!
This gift wrapping cart saves me so much time and space! No more trying to find the box of ribbon and the gift tags in a drawer and the gift wrap on the floor of the closet. Now all of my in supplies are in one spot, handy and organized when I need to wrap a gift – especially during this busy time of year!
This cart has made me excited about gift wrapping again. Grab yours today and let’s make every gift giving occasion a little more special!

The sturdy top shelf normally holds my Anna Griffin Gift Wrap Dispenser, with plenty of work space for cutting the gift wrap smoothly and cleanly. You can cut the paper and wrap the gifts all in one spot!
I have a small problem with paper shred…I love it too much! 🙂 The deeper bottom drawers are the perfect place to stash it.
