I use large craft sticks and wrap the ribbon around it and then put a pin through to hold. I then place them in glass jars by color. Works great.

Hey Tink. I love the idea. I like looking in the issues of Craft Paper Studios and seeing all the color through the glass jars on display.
My challenge.. I'd have to use multiple jars or invest in gallon pickle jars


I do have the craft sticks, though.

Tinkerbell1958 I like the craft stick idea and the clothes pins too!! I have a jar with short cuts of ribbon just pushed into the clear jar, I like the look, but for my larger lengths, a friend gave me some ribbon storage plastic majiggies that go on a large ring that I store on my craft room door on a wreath holder. I like that I can see what I have at a glance. But I'm really liking the idea of smaller storage. Hmmmm,,,some great ideas here!!

I buy my jars at Hobby Lobby when they are 50% off.

GREAT ideas! I can see that each must find what works for them in regards to space, amount of ribbon, ease of portability, etc. Thanks so much!

I just bought this:https://www.etsy.com/listing/7066140...FcdaMgod4hEAYQ


Kind of expensive, but if it works like it is supposed to...well worth it!

I just finished winding all my ribbon on 2" x 4" chipboard cards, organized them by color and put them in a box. It only took two movies worth of time and the materials cost - nothing!!! (Oh, I take that back. It was 67 cents for the bag of rubber bands.)

This is how I have mine and it works for me

I have finally found a ribbon storage method I like! I think the spooled ribbon and the scraps are relatively doable to store, but I've always struggled with storing the individual yards. I was in the dollar store recently and I saw yarn bobbins in two different widths. (You can also get them online.) Once the ribbon is wrapped around the bobbin I use a tiny hair rubberband to hold the end in place. Now that I can see & access my ribbons I hope to actually use them!

I save those plastic containers that fruit and salad greens come in and sorted my ribbon, twine, etc into those. They keep my ribbons, etc organzied and are very portable.

I spent last night with ribbon I used a method like Amazing Paper Grace but with one small twist: I put a "notch" at each end of the chipboard. I used the 1" circle punch and did 1/2 circle each end. I used those little rubber bands that the kids are making bracelets from right now and they are perfect. I am a little concerned about the fold marks on the ribbon when I unwind it but, as others have mentioned, time will tell. I still have my rolls of ribbon in a plastic rain gutter but this method is perfect for the "by the yard" ribbon that I have picked up here and there. After reading this thread and hearing about clothespins, that might be something to try with the ribbon I am afraid to unwind. Hmmm and here I was planning on doing laundry today guess that will have to wait, I have ribbon to play with!!!

However, what I am wondering about, does the ribbon get all curly after it has been stored this way for awhile?

Thanks.
Hi all. I love to be organized. My ribbon boxes are still working great after 4 years. Thanks again to Esther. Here's the direct link to the photo I think you were talking about.

Wow, this is the best ribbon storage method I have seen. I spent an entire evening (2 movies) putting all of my ribbon on cards and organized them by color, but as I accumulated more, they just got tossed into a box.

I don't think I want to spend a lot of time making boxes, so I'll stick with my card method. Guess I need another Hallmark movie to watch so I can re-organize. (Or any other movie where I don't have to pay too much attention.)
