Ribbon Storage!

I have organized my ribbons many different way... left them with their packaging and just threw them in a drawer, stored them in jars and sort them by color, or just toss them in random places because I wasn't sure on what to do lol! The jar one was my most recent, it didn't cross my mind to snap a photo of it so I apologize. I threw my extras, or ones that just didn't fit into a bag... gorgeous right? ha!
The jars weren't much better! It did look nice having them by color... but I couldn't see all of them and had to empty the jar anytime I wanted to take something out.... not practical.
So, I was seaching online and came across this photo of ribbons wrapped around tags, and thought I would give it a try. Its simple, MUCH cleaner and I can actually see what I have.
So here they are... all pretty and in a place they can call home. I have for of these baskets and some ribbons waiting to be put on tags still. I love the way it looks and love how I won't have to deal with knots or buying something twice. Much easier although it did take awhile to put them all on, it was worth it!
Hope this helps you to get organized too!

  1. Love the tags idea. I think in stead of pins I would use magic tape in order to prevent holes in the ribbon.
