Ribbon, ribbon everywhere

This week over at Creative Critters Cricut Club Tammy is showing off ways to store ribbon.  I thought it was only appropriate for me to share my way.  I have been doing this for over a year now and I really love it.  The great thing is my Not so secret Sister form the cricut messageboard stores hers the same way, so we can send each other ribbon and it will easily fit into the others storage system.  So I got these boxes that you can pick up just about anywhere, the clear plastic ones with dividers, then I got some floss cards from the embroidery section of my local craft store and started rolling.  I like my ribbon to stay put so I put a bit of adhesive on each end of the ribbon.  Then the OCD part in me decided that I better organize it in ROYGBIV order.  Don't know what that is?  It's all the colors of the rainbow.  Say it with me, Red orange, yellow, green indigo, violet.  Then I put neutrals, black and white at the end.  I started with just one of these boxes and now have three of them.

  2. I think i got the plastic container at Walmart in the crafts section, but they have them just about anywhere...I believe Michael's has them too and you could look in the floss section since this storage is meant for storing floss

  4. Very organized. And pretty! I don't have the patience to wrap it on those cards. Mine gets tossed in a basket and pulled through the holes. But its whatever works for the crafter right? Love the look of this though. Looks amazing!
