I have the rods between my fabric cabinet and a door jam and it is held up with tension...no nails or screws. :)
Since the door is almost always open, the ribbons are behind it and protected from light.
I string yard long lengths (I loop longer pieces as needed) on to large safety pins, by color and hue then run it through a key ring and slide them on the rod. It is very easy to see everything I have at one glance! :)
Melissa from Ribbon Rings sent the design team a starter set of her product and I just LOVE it! I chose to put my RRR lace on it. This way the threads won't get stretched like they do with my pin and rod method.
It also looks very pretty hanging from my fabric cabinet knob!
She also is going to give one of my lucky followers their very own Ribbon Ring starter set! All you have to do for a chance is comment on this post. The winner will be picked on March 17th.
Lou Ann from Creative Touch, the US rep. for BEST Craft Organizer, sent us all a Ribbon Spooler and I LOVE it too!
I use mine to keep my latest RRR ribbons of the month close at hand. It fits perfectly into the craft drawer tower that is at my work table.

OK......I hesitated to share my dirty little secret, but here goes.....
Once I joined the RRR design team, I pretty much quit using other company's ribbons all together. Who needs the others when you can have all of the beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon you could use? :)
I took the "off brands" down and thew them in two full sized milk crates which I hide in the closet. I had planned on using this week to get them all organized but instead, unexpectedly spent the week at the hospital with my sweet hubby. Sooooooo......here is the rest of my ribbons all pulled out of the closet for the world to see!
I will get them organized soon! PROMISE! ;)
I would love to hear how you keep your ribbon organized! :)
Don't forget to comment here for your chance at the Ribbon Ring that will be given away from my blog. :)
