I have to admit, when Bonnie first suggested that we have this organization week, I kinda panicked. If you had seen the strands of ribbon I had piled on each other haphazardly you probably would have cringed LOL! I really had to get my booty in gear and do something about it! To start, I have a couple of ribbon storage rods that I picked up at Michaels a few months back:
These are perfect for storing spools of ribbon. Next I have my big Scrap Box:
Many of the bins on the right side hold my abundance of ribbon:)
I have bins for my 7/8" and 1 1/2" solid grosgrain spools:
a bin for my patterned grosgrain spools:
then I used this fantastic Ribbon Spooler by Creative Touch to roll up all of my many strands of ribbon:
and I separated them by color family into plastic bags:
Oh my goodness, it's so much nicer now, and I feel so organized!!! I also tried out the compartments that you can get with the Ribbon Spooler:
They fit perfectly in my bin! I definitely need more of these. Finally another one of my new favorite things, the Ribbon Ring!
I love this thing and have already placed an order for a few more:) It's perfect for adding ribbon from the monthly Ribbon Club Assortments, and I have the perfect place for them here on my Clip it up Wall Mount from Simply Renee!
Thank you for making me get organized, Bonnie, and I hope I've helped to motivate some of you out there too! Have a wonderful Saturday!
