… how to organize my ribbon!
I tell ya… I have struggled with this for a long time. I used to have my ribbon in little baggies and in drawers. But then my ribbon would get creases. Then I moved them to jars and just stuffed them in there. But then they would get tangled.
Then I finally figured it out. Clothespins! Yes, this isn’t new, but I never tried is because I didn’t want little hands to get poked by pins holding the ribbon onto the clothespins.
But I finally found a tape that will hold the ribbon onto the pins and not let go! Woohoo. This is big for me.
So I bought tons of clothespins at Hobby Lobby. Big ones and small ones. And the magical tape (Scotch Gloss Finish Transparent Tape – the package is red) at Walgreens. (Colin loves that store…) After many movies with the girls, all my ribbon is wrapped! We even taught Colin how to do it so he could help.
I wanted to put all the wrapped ribbon into jars so it would look pretty. But I hate to dig into deep jars or pour them out to find what I want. So, I have them in tupperwares in my cabinet. Since they are shallow, you can fish through them much easier.
And I am finally happy with my ribbon storage! And I thought I would share. Oh, and I keep a little baggie in with each color for the tiny pieces that won’t wrap on a pin. Using some of these pieces, I made a quick card for Colin’s sitter.
