Make a Grab-and-Go Wrapping Center

Save steps and time by gathering your wrapping paper, ribbon, scissors, and more in one convenient location. An added bonus: It can easily be moved from room to room.

To keep all your wrapping supplies in one spot, try this clever-stored solution. Start with a 5-gallon bucket that you can pick up at any hardware store or home supply store. While your there, pick up a dowel that you're going to cut to use as a holder of all ribbon. Start by drilling a hole through each side of your bucket big enough to fit your dowel through. I've got one already drilled here and then I'll drill one to this side. Then, fit your dowel through and put your rolls of ribbon on, your favorite ribbon, and this works great not only for holding your ribbon, but also for dispensing them. Put your favorite wrapping paper roll in the bucket and you're halfway there. The final touch is this wrap-around garden teddy. This one is adjustable. It fastens right around the bucket. The great thing about this is that it has all these wonderful compartments. You can fill a cup with ribbon, stick it in there. All of your supplies will fit in here. Another awesome feature is this little case for card and tags. Absolutely everything you need all wrapped up in one neat package.
