... i first started buying ribbons for scrapbooking projects.
They were stored as a "heap" in a pretty canvas box.
Trouble is now i use them alot for my journals and often need a certain one. The "heap" storage isn't working!!
I have kept with it until this week when i needed a tiny piece. A specific tiny piece.
After searching for a stupidly long time but no result i decided the time has come to sort this problem ... and find that piece of ribbon!!
Many ideas were looked at:
using old fashioned wooden pegs - would need alot of pegs!!
pins to keep the ends neat - would mark ribbon!!
modern pegs - again would need alot of pegs, take up alot of space!
wrapping elastic around - kept coming undone and fiddly!!
string - slip knot - cheap to buy .... THIS ONE!!
Top has 5 sections. Patterned, printed, spotty, textured.
Bottom has one big section. Twills, binding, larger pieces.
Each wrapped with string in slip knot.
Odd small pieces have a peg to keep them together.
Bags hold lace and elastic.
VERY organized (if i may say so myself!) the only negative point is the outside of the box.
I like pretty storage made to fit NOT practical and plastic but will make an exception in this case as I know the inside is full prettyness.
And i DID find that tiny (much needed) piece.
How do you store your ribbon??
