I'm excited to share this great idea with you today. I've been trying to get my craft area more organized lately and I stumbled across this great idea from Amazing Paper Grace. You can see her post here. I thought... wow, I could do that too! I admit it, I'm a ribbon addict. Not only do I have a shelf full of Stampin' Up ribbons but I also had tons of other spools of ribbons hanging out in various places in my craft room, in boxes, loose on shelves etc.... So I emptied out one of the drawers in my organizer that sits next to where I work and went to town. Luckily I always save the cardboard backer sheets that come with all the Stampin' Up paper packs so I had a bunch of those. I cut them down to 3 inch by 3 inch squares so the ribobns would fit in this drawer and started winding!
Here's how it turned out:
Isn't it lovely? I think I will use it now that it's all pretty, organized and easy to access! PLUS- the amount of space I'm saving it amazing. I had a giant box of cardboard ribbon spools I recycled! previously each of the little cubbies in this drawer would only hold 4 or so spools. Now, as you can see they fit a dozen or so ribbons!
