Happy Sunday evening to everyone!!! I hope you have had a marvelous weekend and are ready for a splendid week ahead of you!!
From today through March 16 the DT of Really Reasonable Ribbons is sharing what each of us do to organize or store our ribbons! You will find my posting HERE showing how I use the Simply Renee 36" Clip It Up Ribbon Organizer to store alot of my ribbons/laces/trims. I would love for you to come over and let me know what you think. If you go to the RRR blog you will find that you can not only win one of these organizers but there are other organizers for you to win as well. So come on over and share with us your way to organize your ribbons--we would love to hear your ideas!!!
In addition to my posting at the RRR Ramblings I am sharing with you some other ways I have of keeping my ribbons. The majority of my ribbon is on rolls so I have to use some means to handle rolls rather than shorter pieces of ribbon. At either end of my coloring/play station I have a MM cabinet.
As many of you know, I use alot of PTI and SU CS for the double matting on my cards so on this left end cabinet I have both PTI and SU ribbons which match the CS, and of course on the top of the cabinet I have some of the trims I use as well.
On the right hand cabinet I have much of the specialty ribbon and raffia laces. You will also note something that is new to me on the right of the cabinet--the Ribbon Ring which is a ribbon storage system comprised of a metal ring and plastic ribbon tags that replace many traditional ribbon storage products. The Ribbon Ring is a ribbon organizer offering more storage in less space and begs to be displayed in your craft area. I have used it for quite a few 1" grosgrain ribbons cut into 1 yard pieces.
Best Craft Ribbon Organizer is another ribbon storage system that is new to me and one which may be ideal for those of you who buy ribbon in shorter lengths (1-2 yards) or are members of the RRR Ribbon Club. You will see that I have used it for this months ribbon assortment, thereby keeping the entire collection together. It consists of a spooler, dispenser, and storage tray.
And now for the rest of the story...YES, I have an affinity for ribbon and NO, all of my ribbon is NOT in these pictures...there is much more in boxes and bags--under the bed, in closets, in the garage, and totally disorganized!!! And I have found that no matter how much ribbon one has, there is never exactly the right color!!! lolol...thus a reason to buy even more ribbon!!! Do you have that same problem???
Thank you so much for dropping by to see what's happening here and I would love for you to let me know what you think of my RRR posting showing the Clip It Up as well as what you have found here!!! Have a marvelous week and I hope to see you again real soon!!! Big hugs coming your way!!!
