One of the most frustrating aspects of crafting is finding the perfect storage system.  While you want it compact, you also want it to be accessible.  Ribbon storage has always been a difficult challenge.  Until now.  No longer will you have crushed wrinkled ribbon from being stored in tight containers.  This system holds up to 24 yards of ribbon.  This kit includes: 1 Spooler, 5 Dispensers, 1 Storage Tray and 6 Divider Discs. Its both easy and affordable. Check out today’s video to see how easy this system is.

  1. I love the technique of using the back of the stamp as your base stamp. That really expands your stamp collection and its uses.
