Tired of using up precious drawer space to store your gift bags and gift wrap? Create a simple wall or closet hanging storage for you bags, wrapping paper and ribbons!



Finished organizer

Materials:
Material
Coordinating thread
Sewing machine
Scrap wood
Dowelling
Stain (if desired)
Screws
Drill
Utility stapler and staples

Method:
Sort your gift bags into 3-4 different sizes. I used 3 sizes and a Christmas bag group.
Measure your bags to determine what size of pockets you will need.
Draw out a template for your organizer to determine how big to cut the base material.
Measure your material, allowing extra for seams (about 2.5 cm) and gathering of the pockets. You will want to create gathered pockets to allow for expansion.

Hem your base for the organizer on 3 sides. The top does not need to be hemmed as it will be stapled onto your board.
Iron your pockets for hemming including the pleats for gathering. Hem the top of each pocket.
Pin your pockets onto the base material. Sew them into place.

Cut your scrap wood the width of the organizer. Depending on the width of your board, may choose to cut two lengths. The top of the board will be used to make a ribbon rack and you will need some distance between the ribbons and the top of your bags.
Cut two small pieces for the ends of the board. Drill a small hole in each end and attach to your main board. Stain your wood if you wish.

Allow time for the stain to dry. Mount your boards on the wall with screws.
Cut dowelling the length of your rack. You will want your dowelling the same diameter as the holes that you drilled. You may need to sand a bit in order for them to fit in.
Attach your organizer to the wood. Flip up the material and staple on the wrong side along the length of the material. I stapled on an extra piece of material as well to reinforce the material.

Flip the organizer back down and load up your pockets with the bags.

Your organizer is complete!
