Hi there---Sheila here today to show you an idea for storing ribbon. I have WAAAAAYYY too much ribbon in my life. It was usually in a jumbled mess and I would just forget I had it.
Meanwhile, about ten years ago, I was fortunate enough to stumble on a sewing kit in a thrift store. It was quite old, so none of the thread was good. I unwound it all and revealed gorgeous old wooden spools. Now mind you, this was before Pinterest, so those spools, though I loved them, stayed in a box for years!
One day, my unused spool collection and jumbled ribbon collection came together in a fabulous way---
All I did was thread a small length of twine through a wooden spool. You wind your ribbon around the spool, and tie the thread in a knot over the ribbon's end. It keeps the ribbon down.
Now, you may be thinking to yourself, that's all well and good, but I don't have a spool collection. If not, a straw works just as well. Just cut it to length, and thread the twine through it, like I did below.VISIT THE CONTRIBUTOR'S BLOGS/GALLERIES
