You said you might do the ribbon thing but you also asked for more suggestions. Something I remembered from long ago was that Stacey Julian (from Big Picture Scrapbooking) said she divided all of her embellishments and everything by color into those drawer units. She had drawers for every color in the rainbow (R.O.Y.G.B.I.V.) plus neutrals. She showed photos of a couple of them, and there was everything in them! She had ribbon, flowers, brads, buttons and even paper (I would leave out the paper, but that's just me). I thought her idea was cool, but at the same point in time, I do not create by color. I create with more of a hodge-podge, mix & match patterns type of thing. I have my cardstock, ribbon, buttons, etc all sorted by type, then mfgr and color. I wouldn't want to keep it all by color in one drawer, but if you are driven to create things by color, then I think that would be a good way to go.
