  2. My husband made me two spinning ribbon racks to store and display my ribbons. They are so awesome. Not only can I see what I have now, but they look gorgeous in my craftroom!

  3. My spools of ribbon are in a soft sided canvas box in my bookshelf unit and the bits and pieces are grouped by color on safety pins which are attached to key rings and hang off of a floor lamp near my craft desk.

  4. I store my ribbon on my wall in a 3 layer wire shelf (kind of look like long white wire baskets)

  8. Bits and pieces are in a huge fishbowl. Ribbon still on a spool or new is stored in a three-drawer cart by color so that when I open the drawer I can see what I am looking for immediately. What I want to do is get a gutter and have it cut the length of my shelves, mounted, and transfer the spools to the gutter for even better visibility.

  15. I have ribbon scraps in clear jars (Making Memories), and I have ribbon in spools and on cards in one Sterilite drawer, organized by color (sort of). And there's also a ribbon holder that I got from my inlaws a few years ago - it has dowels on a base...but it's not nearly big enough for all my ribbon!

    ReplyDelete

  20. My DH made a rack to store my larger wired ribbon where I can just pull the end and it spins for easy access. He used scrap wood pieces and thin poles that are mounted on my craft room wall. I also use a pants/clothes hanger to store my smaller spools of ribbons. It has 4 bars with easy access to remove empty spools and holds about between 50-70 spools depending on the width of the spools.

  31. I bought a wall hanging wood bookshelf... took out the selves made holes on each end and put a wood rod thru the holes. The self unit had three selves so you get three rods (or more depending on how you want to space them). Another way I store the ribbons I use more often is also with a wooden piece which I think is for placing hats on. The base has a heart shape with a rod in the middle. I fit eight spools of ribbon I use most often and close by.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  55. I have the regular size rolls in an Art Bin storage container on my shelf with other Art Bins. It has compartments that hold several rolls. The small size rolls are in jars on my bookcase. I like using Peanut Butter plastic jars for storing ribbons. I also have a Clip-it-up on the wall for my larger rolls.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'm drowning in ribbons! I went through this stage where I literally bought every ribbon made in every shade, texture and size! Currently, its in a disarray! I've got them in a big 3-drawer sterilite drawer, while others are stuffed in bags...somewhere and the itty bitty cute ones are in glass jars I have lining my shelves. It sounds horrible, but its only because I'm currently sharing my space with my husband!

  73. Believe it or not I used to be a Mary Kay consultant and I had this big "tackle box" used for sample products. I hung on to it and finally realized it's great for ribbon. Big rolls are stored inside and cut lengths are stored in the too section that has many cubby holes. I can pick the whole case up to browse through and my goal is to never exceed the storage capacity. Keeps my stash in check.

  112. My ribbon stays on the rolls that I get them on because my husband built me 2 beautiful ribbon cabinets. Nicole Heady, owner of PTI, had her husband build her display racks and she posted the drawings, supply lists and some directions on her blog and my DH built them for me from her specs. You can find them on her blog. Here's the link and some pictures of her ribbon storage that I also have: http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/studio-ribbon-storage.html (you will need to copy paste)
