I used some folded note cards to organize my ribbon scraps. Once you fold the card a few times, you simply staple it together. Then, wrap your ribbon scrap around the card and hold in place with a paperclip. I saw this trick on a blog somewhere a long time ago but I can't find where. If anyone knows where this idea came from, please let me know so I can link to it. I want to give credit where it's due!
For my ribbon rolls, I used a dowel rod measuring 3/16" x 36" I picked up from a craft store. The dowel was thin enough to cut to size with a pair of scissors.
|It cost $.50. Nice.|
|Cable ties keep the dowel in place. I left the cable tie on one end kind of loose so I could slip it off to add more ribbon rolls. Thinkin' ahead!|
This is the end result! All of my ribbons and bows are organized and easy to access. With room to grow my collection.
Ok, procrastination over. I have a three day weekend starting tomorrow. I'm hoping to wrap up a bunch of projects and maybe even find some time to relax and hang out with my family. Wishful thinking? Probably. But, sometimes that's all you have!
