I have spent a lot of my day trying to get my craft room organized again. I thought I would show you what I did with my loose ribbon. I literally have hundreds of rolls of ribbon that are organized in a different manor but since I joined Really Reasonable Ribbon's design team, I have lots and lots of yardage pieces. Now I do have one of those plastic boxes with all of the holes that you pop the ends of ribbon through, but I keep getting it tangled when I pull ribbon through.
My solution was to sort by color and or style and attach like ribbons together by running a large safty pin through the ends, attaching a tag reminding me what company they came from, then closing the pins around a tiny tension rod.
Now I can see all of my ribbons at a glance.
I will cut the ribbon off as I need it but will always save a small piece on the safety pin so I know what I need to re-order. Is that smart or what?? :)
I did mine in one yard lengths and if the ribbon was longer, I just looped it back up through the pin to keep from cutting it into pieces.
Don't have enough ribbons to do this? I know a GREAT place to go shop for some!

Hope you liked my little tip!
If so...please give me a "HOLLA"!
