Have I ever told you how much I LOVE ribbon? Well, I do. Every time I go to the store I seem to come home with spools of ribbon. I just can't resist. Because I have so much, I store my spools by color family in rows in a large flat box (case of water-sized). Then the smaller spools and cards are in my JoAnn's ribbon storage boxes. But what about those loose lengths? I love the idea of those cute zippered storage bags with the holes all around to thread the ribbon lengths through, but they are so expensive.
Well, here's my solution and believe it or not, it works!
This is a basket from the Dollar Store. I just threaded the ends through to the outside. It looks a mess inside, but the ribbons pull right out without tangling. I just keep it on one of my craft closet shelves, take it out, look for the ribbon color (I tried to keep them somewhat together) and pull out what I need. It's a lot easier to find the ribbon than when I had it stuffed inside a box. I'd much rather spend my money on the actual ribbon that something fancy to store it in.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and Happy Crafting,
