I love ribbon! I love giving gifts to the people I love and I love making those gifts look fun, festive and beautiful! No matter what I'm giving, it usually ends up wrapped in cellophane with a cute tag and a nice, big bow. I believe in big, generous bows. It makes all the difference In The appearance of a gift! However, ribbon can get expensive. That is why I save every piece of ribbon I get. I also buy ribbon when I find it cheap! As you can probably guess – I have a lot of ribbon.
I store my ribbon by color. I used to save the cardboard spools and wrap my ribbon around those, but it still takes up a lot of room and the spools are all different sizes. I like more uniform look. I came up with this new system and it is working great for me.
Find a container and cut cardboard or card stock to fit the container and simply wrap your ribbon around the cardboard. What I like about this method is that it takes up less room and you can easily see what kind of ribbon you have at a glance. (I love these storage containers I have. I bought them at target in the bathroom organization section, but I have not been able to find them again. They have been discontinued.)
It looks so much better this way! And it takes up so much less room.
