Default Ribbon Storage

I'm looking for a more efficient way to sore my ribbons. Any good ideas out there?

I like using the large snapware boxes. Here's a post on my blog: Inking with Brenda Lee: More Organization - Ribbon

I use the pant hangers that have 3 or 4 arms that swing out. And I use cd/dvd boxes (the one with a spindle in it).

I keep small pieces in a basket and whole spools in a cabinet stacked by color. Anything else goes in a clear box that has cube dividers.

I have mostly SU. I keep them on the spool. They are in a low rectangular picnic basket and are arranged by color. The lid is hinged. I like to repurpose. I've done repurposing for all my storage needs.

I struggled with this for a long time. At one point I took them off the spools and put them all on paper towel rolls to save some space. But I still had trouble finding what I wanted. So one day I took my box, sat on the couch, and unspooled every single one! Now I have them all in Ziploc storage bags by color (all the reds in one, blues in another...). This has really worked out great for me! Might not for most people...but I have found it very easy to just reach down and grab the bag of yellow then decide which "Yellow" or "design" fits what I'm doing.

I have them in 3 drawers. Scraps are in glass jars - warm, cool and neutral.

Depends on how many ribbons you have to store there's some cool ideas out there. Here's my ribbon storage, although the photo only shows one small bit, I have a number of those wire baskets hanging on my wall.

And here's another idea for a smaller amount of ribbons

I was working on mine this weekend, using this idea:
Great Ribbon storage

The Spellbinders packaging that I keep thinking I should throw away - and then can't bear to - works great for making these little boxes. I was surprised to find that the 2" boxes are big enough for almost everything I have. My SU ribbons are staying on their reels, but these work great for all the rest of it that I have. And they'll fit quite nicely in some storage satchel things that I got earlier this summer on a really good clearance sale at Michaels.

Over the years, I think I have tried almost every way to store ribbon that's out there. It has become so much easier since I have taken them off the spools. I had been using plastic bobbins from cropper hopper, but I think they have been discontinued. Recently I saw on pinterest someone using the square coasters everyone was so crazy about a few years back. Had some, tried them, worked great.
I think you can find it here:

I used a rubber band instead of the binder clips.
