Gift Wrap Organizer Cart with Colorful DIY Drawer Labels
The Scary UnOrganized Before
So here’s how our collection of wrapping paper and other gift wrap supplies looked before this organization project.
Can you say “hot mess”??
When we moved a few years ago, everything gift wrap-related was literally shoved into our guest room’s closet, and more supplies have been periodically added to it (thank you, Target clearance!).
Our organization “method” consisted of tossing the new stuff on top and crossing your fingers that you could close/open the closet doors without triggering an avalanche.
Our previous storage container for rolls of wrapping paper worked for a while, but it’s too short for the longer rolls, so those were just ditched to the side.
Also, gift bags, boxes, bows, and labels (all in there somewhere) managed to get lost or crushed in the abyss.
And oh! That poor, poor tissue paper.
My sincerest apologizes, colorful, crinkly friends.
You have no idea how much this pained my organization-loving soul.
I’ve been dreaming of getting this gift wrap cart for literally YEARS, and this January I snagged one after finally having enough with our closet catastrophe.
Psssst…don’t forget to snag your free cash back offer before shopping for one of your own!

Making the DIY Gift Wrap Organizer Labels
Here’s how my label mockups looked in Silhouette Studio…easy to read and colorful!
And if you’re interested in the font that I used, you can find it here.
Once the words were cut, I weeded them with my craft tweezers…
…then cut out rectangles in five different colors of vinyl to serve as the label backgrounds.
You could also of course just used construction or scrapbook paper as well.
Once the rectangles were ready, I applied the words one at a time using a strip of washi tape.
After popping them inside their clip-on holders and snapping them shut, the labels were ready to go!
Here they all are in their lovely, colorful, labeled glory.
And yes, I did let out a little chuckle as I applied the “LABELS” decal…I mean, it’s a label for labels.
It’s kinda like labeling your label maker with a “Label Maker” label you made with that label maker. ツ
Our Gift Wrap Organizer Cart with DIY Labels!
And here’s our gift wrap cart all filled and labeled and ORGANIZED!
You all literally have NO IDEA how much time I have spent gazing at this beauty.
What can I say…organization just sets my heart a’flutter.
ALL of our wrapping paper supplies now have designated homes, are easy to find, and won’t get inadvertently lost or damaged.
Now if my husband comes asking where the Christmas gift labels are this December, he’s getting a shoe thrown at his head.
I’ll aim for his shin. ;)
These drawers and their colorful labels are simply amazing.
Organization shall set you free, my friends.
