METRO CREATIVE


With just a few feet of space, anyone can create a compact gift wrapping station.


Create your own gift-wrapping station


Santa’s workshop likely de-


votes an entire floor to gift wrap, ribbon, bows and bags. Intricately wrapped presents sustain the suspense of the treasure beneath the paper. In addition, there’s something special for recipients when a gift is adorned in ribbon and bows. However, the average gift giver cannot recreate Santa’s wrapping room when the time comes to wrap gifts. But a person may be able to fashion a compact wrapping station in a seldom-used cor- ner.

Many people long to have an area where they can create wrapping magic for holiday gifts, birthday presents and other tokens of appreciation throughout the year. However, with limited space, tall rolls of gift paper may have been stashed in the back of a closet or tucked under a bed, making them inconvenient to use once it is time to wrap gifts. With just a few feet of space, anyone can create a compact gift wrapping station that, while free of fancy bells and whis- tles, has all that’s needed to get the job done.

The first step in creating


your wrapping station is to find a spot that is out of the way


but enables you to easily keep inventory of paper and rib- bons.The back of a door or behind the door often provides adequate space to store sup- plies, and the width of a door might be the right size for the average roll of wrapping pa- per. If the door is too narrow, the rolls can be hung vertically instead of horizontally. Fortunately, gift wrap is narrow and doesn’t take up much space on its own. Therefore, it usually can be tucked into a corner. Also, you just may have enough scrap materials around the house to use to build your wrapping station. If not, a trip to the hardware store or home improvement center can generally yield what you need. Wooden dowels are an inex- pensive yet valuable supply. Rolls of wrapping paper can be slid on the dowels and hung horizontally on hooks protruding from a door or wall. For a vertical installation, make a wooden frame the width and length that will be needed. Drill holes in the frame on the top and bottom through which the dowels can be fed.
