Organize Your Ribbon

I have acquired a bit of ribbon due to various projects and was getting tired of digging through my shoe boxes of them to find the exact one I was looking for. When I saw this idea for organizing your ribbon, at Capturing the Moment, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for.

I found my jar at Wal-Mart and my doll pins (wooden slotted clothes pins) at Ben Franklin.

In my searching, I also came across some other great ideas for storing your ribbon on the following websites: Little Birdie Secrets, Your HomeBased Mom, and Martha Stewart.

    That is such a perfect idea!!! I have so much ribbon it isn't funny! Been wondering how to keep it!

    I've got my ribbon stored like that, too. The clothespins I found that worked best were from Dollar Tree, in case anybody else is not near a Ben Franklin.

    That is so pretty – love the idea. I have the same jar but need to find the clothespins. Will look at the dollartree, no Ben Franklin near me. Your pics are awesome! Kristin

    I tried putting my ribbon on the pins in the past. maybe if I had that type of jar, it would have worked better.

    oh what a oh so cte idea…I bet my 8 year old would love to give the little people faces before I wrap them up with ribbon too! This really is what I was looking for! What a great
    idea! I think I will need a different idea for my longer ribbons though.
    Thanks a million!

    Oh my goodness, this is perfect! I’ve been looking around and spending too much time pondering how I can condense my ribbon storage (I.e. removing them from those peaky large cardboard spools) without their being smooshed into flat folds and this is an ideal solution! So glad I ran across this, thank you so much for sharing this great idea.


  1. [...] Take your ribbon off the spool and buy some wooden slotted clothes pins. Wrap the ribbon around each pin and store them in a cute canister for safe keeping.{picture from site}. [...]

  2. [...] ribbon organization from the idea room [...]
