I love the glass jars...I have smaller pieces wrapped around wooden spools that I bought at Walmart and they look pretty in a jar. But massive amounts of ribbon, stuffed by color in the jars is really pretty. They have it in this month's Scrapbook etc...just like that! Of course, you need space to line up all of those jars and my laundry room is full, full, full!

Here is what I do, it is easy and it works for me.
I loop the loose ribbon around a coathanger. If the piece is long, I fold it in half and then loop it around.

This is the zip lock storage that was originally posted by Tilly. I really find it useful.

Here is another one that a friend of mine uses that was originally posted by Suzanne. I think it looks quite nice.

I have 2-yard samples of ribbon each in their own snack-size ziplock bags on a binder ring! easy to see what you have and all of them are labeled on the bag. Take out what you need and put it back when you are done. I have swatches folded.

I just re-did my ribbon storage. I did the plastic rain gutter for the spool ribbon. $3.29 for 6 ft. Then the ribbon that are 5 to 10+ yards, I rolled them (BIG PITA),stuck a pin in the end to close, then put them by color in a plastic bead case. I got around 115 rolls in one box! It looks so much nicer.

Default Cheap?

Maybe I am Cheap.....But I like re-using something I already have.....
I CD inserts I used would have been trash, but I made them into something useful.

I do like the Plastic Bottle idea....Because it is something that would be throw away....this way you can re-use it.

Here's idea for you all. Take Glass Jars and clean them up and store your Ribbon inside them...Instead of buying more glass Jars.

I have some Glass jars from apple sauce that I have been cleaning and saving for storeage.


PS: With re-using things I already have NOW I have more money to buy stamps and supplies and maybe More R-I-B-B-O-N

Oooh, you have given me a great idea for storing my microbeads. I think those short, squat salsa jars would be perfect for those, and heck, even for ribbons, and I bet it would be a cinch to put large eyelets in the lids so I can just pull the ribbon right through. Great.....now I'm going to be stalking the grocery store looking for jar sizes I want and then figuring out how to use the contents!

Thanks for all the wonderful ideas. I have WAAAAAAYYYY too much stuff so I am going to have to do a combo of these ideas. The jar ideas are really pretty but how do you get in them to find the particular one you want you need? I am afraid I would make more of a mess. Anyone want to come over and help me get my new stamp room organized?

I just took the plunge and started sticking all mine in seperate little 4x4 baggies. Then I put them in colors onto a ring so like red has a ring, blue has a ring, green...and so on....I will have to take a pic tomorrow and upload it...it is perfect! Now to do the other two thirds of my ribbons!!!

Yep, back stateside. We arrived last Thursday, nearly a week ago, and we finally feel human and recovered from jetlag. We decided to recarpet our house (long, long story) and we might as well do it while the house is empty. So, it's just us and our 12 suitcases of crud sitting here......and my ribbon!! I just sit and run my fingers through it since I have no cardstock, stamps, ink, or embellishments.

Luckily, I'm too busy to notice that I can't stamp. We had to buy a car (environment killing Suburban) and a travel trailer for our sabbatical drive this summer. We'll be back and I'll be stamping at the end of the summer! Woo-hoo!!!

I love this idea (first saw it on Julie HRR blog ). I was wondering if the baggies would tear. What is your impression? Do you think you will have to replace them often (often = 6 months or less)
I do love the way this looks though

Wink Loose ribbon storage

My friend Mary Jo organized my ribbon by using Large clear plastic tubs( the kind you get from the deli). She cut the ribbon into 24 inch pieces and cut a X in the lid. She put all the red together in one tub with little tails of ribbon sticking out the top. She did the same for each color group. Works like a charm for me. Hope this helps.

I saw in the stampin' spaces gallery where someone wrapped loose ribbon around one of those foam swimming noodles and used a pin to hold it in place. I thought that was genius, so I thought I'd share it with you!

Do you have a link to this?? It sounds intriguing, especially when paired with the rain gutter idea.

Heidi - I recently started organizing my stampin supplies, and found a new way to store my ribbons. I use a piece of cardboard (from CM inserts) cut to a size that fit into an already bought rubbermaid box (the kinds with the handles on the lids?). Then, stapled a piece of ribbon to the cardboard, and wrapped it around and secured it with a pin. I attach other ribbons from the same color family to the same card.

To take it with me, I just put the lid on the box. I can see all my ribbons at a glance.

It's similar to what some others have posted here. And, I found the idea on another SCS post. It was easy to do, inexpensive, and works for me.

See it here.

Well... first of all.... I HAVE to say.... those jars are just TOOOOO cute... man.... more appealing than candy!!! WOW!!

The wallpaper 'gutters' are really kewel too!!

That "Ghetto" way is fun!

I'm a picture person, and didn't spend the time to read ALL the posts here, but let me show you my "hillbilly" way of storing loose ribbons. In fact, I took a lot of the single spools of "American Craft" ribbons off the spool because they were a pain to store 'neatly' (without a hole for a dowel).
I staple mine (in color groups) to a piece of c/s and punch a 1/2" hole in the c/s to hang. It's right next to me.... and nothing to put away.... just tuck the whole bunch over top of my 'hillbilly plastic' baskets! (<-- pretend my smiley is missing a tooth)

I just started a thread the other day about how I used floppy discs to wrap my ribbon around. It works great! The discs are small enough and yet strong. If you have a lot of ribbon just wind some, then move it down and continue winding. Here's a link (since I can't figure out how to add thumbnails):[IMG]//www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=313641&cat=500&ppuser=71523[/IMG]

I don't think it will tear just because they aren't heavy (even the ones with ric rac in them) and I will just exercise caution when opening them... I will let you know though if I find it is a problem!
