Extra office supplies definitely shouldn't live at your desk — but they don't have to call a traditional supply cabinet home either. Free up space by housing supplies in containers that match your surroundings. Label containers so everyone knows what's stored inside.
Have a large, open surface devoted to shipping. Designate a separate area as your shipping station. This space should include an open surface for wrapping everything up. The size of the surface needed will vary depending on your craft. But in general, the larger the surface the better. Devote as much space to shipping as you can. It can be frustrating to work in a cramped area.
3. Task LightingTask lighting isn't just for kitchens — focused lights are paramount wherever any task is performed. This laundry and crafts room exemplifies this with task lighting in pendants at the island, undercabinet lighting for the countertops and a good amount of natural light from the window.

I would have a hard time keeping it all organized, but how awesome to have kids crafting while I do laundry...and to keep their crafts off the kitchen table. Also, awesome to have sewing machine handy for mending....
I love the idea of putting unopened gift wrap in tubes into things such as tall baskets. Have a system set up for wrap that's been opened whereby the rolls get slipped ontop less which are fastened tightly
