Wrapping Center

Bring on the holiday wrapping!
I'm ready!

I decided that with our spare room I wanted a designated and peaceful space for wrapping gifts.
Wrapping on the floor or clearing my pretty tablescape was getting old...

I decided to use the sewing table in 'Otis' Room' as the wrapping table.
I used a cute trash can to corral my wrapping paper.
I used another container to the right of the table to corral my big bags, boxes and tissue paper.
For above the table I knew I wanted to make a pretty board to hang all the wrapping necessities.
I started with this
Cork board: $3.99
Fabric: $2.50
Glue gun

Then I glued the fabric to the cork front
Then added ribbon trim to the edges
And after....
I hung scissors, pens, ribbon, gift tags and small gift bags

For the 'wrap' to the left I started with $.50 chipboard letters
Then spray painted them yellow

Easy peasy!

On the table top I have my roll of tape, my container of additional ribbon and my grandmother's serving piece with a plethora of bows.

So there ya have it!
I actually can't wait to wrap!

What do you think?
