All sorted by color!
LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea. Mine are all thrown in a box and tangled. What a wonderful idea. I am wondering if the rings would go through the holes of the reels also. I have some of those rings and will definitely get them out and try. Thank you so much
Great idea!! I like how each large ring holds a different color family. Nice job!
Here is an idea that I use . . .
I have one box for solid ribbons (mostly one color or those with minimal white on them or tone-on-tone). Then I have another box for multi-color and themed ribbon. If the ribbon is on a mini-spool, I can just drop it in the space. If not I wind it around floss cards. The boxes are from Cropper Hopper.
Since these pictures were taken 2 years ago, I have added 2 more boxes for a total of four boxes. Each box houses different types of ribbon organized by type (Cross-grain, organza, ric-rac, Specialty, etc.) and color (solid, multi, themed, and nuetrals) They are great for taking to crops too! I only take the case(s) I need.
Happy Crafting & Organizing!!, Barbara
I like the ring idea so much I was inspired to clear out some closet space in the craft room. I realized I could hang more than ribbon. If I sort the cards I've created into groups, I can bag them up accordingly & hang them on rings like that, too. I also saw the idea (somewhere I can't remember) of using the hangers used for shower curtains. You can put bags of cards on those & hang them on your closet rod.
I love the box full of ribbon, but it looks incredibly neat & I'm not sure I can keep it that way!
Hi Dotti! Glad to see you on here. Feel free to add any organizing tips you have. Dies, punches, paper, ribbon...even how you prefer to set up when you're making cards. Do you like to have everything out where you can see it or do you keep it put away? I'm curious about how other people create, 'cause I'm a work in progress & want to improve as I progress!
While you're decluttering, what do you work on first? I honestly don't know where to begin. I'm overwhelmed.
These are great ideas for organising ribbons. Will have to give them a go. I've got at least three years worth of ribbon (seriously), yet I still buy more, and more....
