Now on to the organization! Today I would like to show you how I store my ribbon! Again, I have tried SO many different ways...boxes with holes, bags with holes, dowels, shelves, you name it I have done it!! Lol!! But this idea is so far the BEST way I have had my ribbon!! I love it! I started sorting my embellishments by rainbow color & found that it is so much easier to find things! So I do that with my ribbon too!
It all started with the white cubes from Michael's...I had one that had two large drawers and it came with a divider to sort small things. Well, I used it for my Stampin Up ribbon because those spools are larger than most...then it hit me! Why not put ALL my ribbon like that?? So I bought 2 more cubes, but this time I bought the ones w/3 smaller drawers....AND I made my own dividers out of foam board! So here is the "Tower O'Ribbon" (labeled of course!!)
I also store my scraps in here too...just used one section of the dividers for scraps!
I would like to get one more set of drawers...I would love to separate my red & pink ribbon! I now have a total of 8 drawers (red/pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black/white & brown/metallic) Now when I am making something, I figure out what color ribbon, open the drawer & there is all my ribbons in one place!
Now for the blog hop winner from last weekend....And the winner is.....
