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.

    It looks so pretty. I have been meaning to do something like that, would make searching so much easier. Thanks for the reminder.:)

    That is such a great idea! I love it. Organzied and cute, how could anything be better!

  5. Martha says

    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!

    Char–Thanks for the tip on Dollar Tree. I do also remeber seeing some at JoAnn's one time while looking for something else!

    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.
