How can that NOT get your attention?
So here's the peek-
And here's the expanded version:
I've tried organizing by ribbon type (all grosgrain/satin/etc), by ribbon series (striped grosgrain), but I like to see it by color.
This is actually part of a rather large shelving unit- after I joined the May Arts team I needed to store that gorgeous ribbon, so I added 1x2" mdf boards to the shelving unit. I have an L-bracket on each end & in the middle for support.
Now what do you do when that isn't enough room?
You visit Ikea!
This wire basket cart holds a TON of ribbon! And you can even stack another unit on top for more storage. I love that I can sort it by color & see what color is in each before I even pull out the basket.
And for ribbon that I don't have entire rolls of?
I keep them on cardstock & file them in drawers too. No rhyme or reason! The Ikea baskets would work for this system too, but I already had this 3 plastic drawer bin, so I put it to use.
My baker's twine & silk are on my Ribbon Carousel!
Before I had such an amazing supply, I used to wrap my ribbon around clothes pins & put them in wide mouth jars. Also a super pretty way to store those smaller amounts of ribbon!
Hope I've given you some ideas for how to store your ribbon!
