All sorted by color!
I also collect lots of smaller lengths of ribbons....I use small clip lock plastic (sandwich) bags and then sort the colours into individual bags, I then store them in a craft box...easy to find and not bulky at all.
I know this thread is a bit old but I have just found it and thought I'd add my idea way of ribbon storage,
I saw this on you tube so it not my idea but I adopted it and love the way it works for me.
The hangers are trouser hangers that had rubber on each rung which I removed because the ribbons wouldn't move easy.
I looped the ribbons then put them on the rails then cut the loops at the bottoms so I had raw ends to grab instead of looking for the ends all the time I wanted ribbon.
sorry photo didn't work
Wow! Margaret this is some serious ribbon hanging. I think this would be easy to find what you are looking for, though. I need to look closer at this thread as my ribbon is all in a ziploc bag or two and not as easy to locate what I want as it could be.

LOL firstly I can't get a photo to up load then I end up with two postings of the same thing??????????
I have found this the best way for me, I've had snap lock bags, reels on rod, draws with spools that never stay tidy and take up a lot of space but on hangers it just takes up a small amount wall space, I hang these behind the door where nothing else can go and as you can see I can still fit heaps more ribbon on the hangers yet, I had my laces on cards but found the lace ended up with fold marks on them so this solved that to.
Margaret, you did not post two photos. I pressed reply on your original photo post, so it copied the whole thing. You did fine!
