How do we accumulate so many spools of ribbon? While trying to organize my craft room, one of my concerns was how to get a grip on my growing mound of ribbons.
I browsed pinterest hoping to find a solution. I had too many spools to use a paper towel holder. I would need at least 10-20 of those. Then I would be faced with another dilema.
I have a long curtain rod (extends to 102") I wasn't using. I nixed that idea when I realized how wide it would need to extend to hold all this ribbon.
The spools were the problem. They take up a lot of room. They had to go.
I took some card stock and made these holders.
It took me a full day to transfer all the ribbons to the cards. Didn't realize it would take so long, but then again, I had a lot of ribbon.
I found the perfect box at TJ Maxx. I was really surprised it held all the ribbons and I still have room for a few more. Yes, I will probably buy more ribbon. You can never have enough ribbon, right?
I love the box, but not so much the design on the lid. No problem. I covered it with this sweet paper.
I'm still amazed that I was able to get all that ribbon into this box. I was stressing about getting it under control. So, how do you organize your ribbon?
till next time...
