I was looking for a wrapping paper station for over-the-door recently and found this one. Reader Space: Great Gift Wrap Organization! from IHeart Organizing
This was a great starting point. However, I needed to add more wrapping paper station items, like envelopes and greeting cards and scissors and tape. So I created my own. Here is what I did.
I went to The Container Store online and ordered the parts for this organizing project. The site above also listed the products I needed. Then I added one more of the large bin “elfa Narrow Deep Basket Platinum” to use for greeting cards and envelopes. I picked platinum color instead of white. I liked it better for an office.
Items Needed To Create An Over-the-door Gift Wrapping Station
1 – elfa Residential Overdoor Hooks Platinum Set of 2 1-3/8″
3 – elfa Deep Basket Platinum 17-1/8″ x 5-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ h
1 – elfa Shallow Basket Platinum 17-1/8″ x 4″ x 2-7/8″ h
1 – elfa Spice Rack Basket Platinum 17-1/8″ x 3-1/8″ x 2-3/4″ h
1 – elfa Media Rack Platinum 17-1/8″ x 6-1/2″ x 2-3/4″ h
1 – elfa 77-3/4″ Mounted Standard Platinum
COST: $105.00 (including tax and shipping)
Then, when everything came in, I went to town on assembling it. I was so excited that I didn’t need to mount anything to the actual door, except the top and bottom of the frame. This way, it would not damage the door.
Before: This is the closet door in my office. I wanted to place it here since it was unused space in my small office.
I added the hooks and bar.
Then added the baskets and started from the bottom.
I added the items I had to make sure everything fit properly as I was going along. Started with the largest items first.
The end result looked like this. Starting from the top.
- Ribbons and tape bin are in the first bin.
- Then tissue paper in a gift bag that was narrow enough for the bin and scissors are in the second bin.
- The third bin was for the greeting cards, and the last bin was for wrapping paper rolls.
Then, I went to town with the details. I picked one of my many shelf adhesive liners.
Then, I covered the tissue paper gift bag I re-purposed into a tissue paper holder.
The final product.
I had event tabs for my greeting cards organizer already. I used the front two tabs and covered them with Used Self-Adhesive Shelf Liner paper to make them uniform with the tissue paper holder. Here is a Greeting Cards tabs template for you to use and share.
Here is the before picture of the greeting card bin.
I made little cuts around the curve to keep the shape of the divider tabs.
I then used chalkboard labels and liquid chalk marker to label the greeting cards bin.
Here is the finished product. I decided to organize the greeting cards in ABC order by the event so I divided the greeting cards events into two piles. In the middle to divide the piles, I used computer envelopes because we use them when we send out customized thank you or invitation cards.
I then labeled the rest of the bins since I am not the only one using this station.
I love it! If you love it too, please share!
