Growing up, I was all girl. Purses, bows and ribbons have been a staple since my earliest years. I have always loved ribbon. Equally as exciting as a new gift, for me, is its beautiful wrapping, especially when adorned with a perfect bow. I have saved all of those ribbon pieces over the years, and I have grown my collection of cut ribbon. When they’re not on their spools it can be difficult to organize. For years, I have struggled to find the best solution for me. And, I think I’ve found it…
Let me show you what I’ve done:
OK, First Let’s talk supplies and what I’m working with.
I love this table, it was a gift to me, so I am not sure where it is from, but here is one that is very similar from Amazon. In fact I like it better, because when given the choice, I’d always pick white.
I got these little white bins from IKEA. For $2.99 a piece, you can’t beat the price, and I’ve found that all of their plastic bins are thick and sturdy. I’ve had no problems with quality, and they fit the little cards I used to store the ribbon well.
FOR THE RIBBONS:
After you have repeated these steps, sort your ribbon by color and stack them in the bins, so that you can see what you have.
I have found that this system is easy to maintain, of course it takes more work than shoving ribbons in a bin, but it is easier to find what you’re looking for and it looks so much nicer.
Let me know in the comments if you tried this and how it worked!
