New Ribbon Storage

I'm baaaackkkkk! And while I still haven't had the time to create, I have some things to share. I have a new love for the website Pinterest. You have to be invited to join, but it is a lot of fun...think of it as a virtual cork board, a place to keep all the cool stuff you find on the Internet in one place so you really can come back to it later.  If you would like an invite, send me your email address and I will invite you.  This isn't a promotion thing, I don't get anything from new members, I just love the site and wanted to share it with everyone!

  That is where I found this brilliant idea, and it is so simple, I can't believe I had never thought of it before.

This is my previous ribbon storage, while it looks pretty, it was a pain to get the ribbon I wanted out.

This is the start of the new storage...and to think it all started with  simple clothes pin! I totally had  a *DUH* moment when I saw it too.

It really is as easy as it looks, put one end of the ribbon in the clothes pin, roll it up and tuck the other end into the clip.

Now, I am not close to being done yet,  but I have about 150 ribbon clips in my repurposed cheese ball container from Target.

So, if you are looking for a good storage system for your ribbon, try it out...oh and it is cheap!!!! You can get 50 clothes pins for around a dollar
I hope you have found this helpful, and thanks for stopping by after my loooonnngggg time off of posting!!!
