Oh I am soooo excited about organization week here on the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog!! Each day one of the design team members are showing you all how we organize our ribbons...whether it be with some sort of system or something "home made". For me...I do both!
For my scraps I use the Ribbon Spooler, and Ribbon Dispensers and Storage Trays from BEST craft. Then to store all of the different trays and dispensers, I have one of the BEST craft organizer four drawer cubes. They also offer even bigger organizers...there truly is one for every need you could think of! :)
I really do love these products, I can see all the MANY different types of ribbon I have (or am hoarding! LOL!!). I store them by color, so I know exactly where they should be. If there are multiple colors on the ribbon I will put them with the color that is dominate. If there is no dominate color, I store them in my pattern section of my ribbons. For those ribbons that are too wide to fit in the Ribbon Dispensers, I spool them, close them with a glue dot and store them in the storage tray compartment behind the dispenser with the matching colors as you can see in this pictures.
To spool the ribbons you can see the wonderful video over on Lou Ann's blog Creative Touch (just click on the first video listed on the right side of her blog!) It is just that simple, and fun!! :)
Now, that is how I organize my ribbon pieces. For those ribbons that I get on spools, I kind of do an old fashion method...nothing fancy at all. I just put the spools (in one layer) in shoe box sized plastic boxes. Again really easy to see, so I can see what I have!!
Thanks so much for visiting today! I hope you have a wonderful day!
