I collect ribbon like I collect scrapbook paper, fabric, twine and washi tape. I never know when I might need a certain color, width or type so I like having a good selection on hand. But, how about storing it all? I like storing it in the open because it looks pretty and I have easy access to it.
You might recognize this picture as my cover photo on Facebook. The storage containers on the right are from Hobby Lobby. I bought them for $6 using the 40% off coupon. I made holes in the storage boxes on the left using my Big Bite Crop-o-dile. It’s perfect for thin ribbon.
How about wrapping ribbon, securing it with a small clothespin and tossing it in a vase or bowl.
I put tiny scraps, perfect for cards, in a small drawer.
Ric rack and binding tape is kept on the cards they come with and stored in a letter file organizer. I need to paint it. Will you help me think of a cute color?
One of my favorite ways to store ribbon is on a curtain rod. It makes it so easy to cut off what you need.
These little containers are from the $1 Spot at Target.
Since I’m in a temporary craft room right now, I have some stacked on a shelf. Aren’t they pretty?
Here’s some more great ribbon storage ideas.
