Default Storing Ribbon

Do you store your ribbon by color or by type? Just curious how others store/organize their ribbon...

I store my loose ribbons (ribbons not on spools) by colors. Makes it easier to see what I have.

I use the clothespin approach as well. Very practical and it looks really cute!

I store mine by colour. I just got the Pull-ez, you can check it out on my blog, and for my larger ribbons I use the cropper hopper ribbon cards.

Everyone has such neat ideas! I was wondering because I use the floss cards/floss box and it has always worked well for me, but now that I'm buying SU ribbon I've noticed I have 4 spools of different styles of choc. chip ribbon and can't decide if I should keep grossgrain together and taffeta together, etc. or if I should keep all choc. chip together...

Ah, the dilemma of having so many gorgeous ribbons!

I quit storing mine on clothespins because some seems to want to hold the curl and I would have to press it. That storage method sure makes a pretty presentation though...

I use long clear storage boxes from hsn.com for my ribbon spools now. I can see the colors at a glance and the boxes have a little handle for quick retrieval and return.

I store my ribbons on the spools and in a gutter mounted under my shelf. I have them in the gutter by color. Love it for quick pick and replacement, I don't mind trying several ribbons on my project to find just the right one without having to precut it.

I have most of my ribbon stored in a divided drawer in my craft room wall unit (it was part of the Cropper Hopper Home Center). Most of my ribbon is SU and is on a spool. "Non-conforming" ribbon is stored separately. (LOL)

Thumbs up Amazing Ribbon Storage

I've gone through so many ribbon storage systems and have settled on one that I think will keep me for a while....I'm really pleased with it. I put up a post on my blog so that I could share quite a few sample pictures. You'll find them here:

http://www.amazingpapergrace.com/ama...ibbon-storage/

Feel free to send questions!

Becca that IS amazing!!! I'm definitely going to have to consider that as soon as I can clean some shelf space to put the drawer unit on.

This is exactly what I do too, but I do keep all of my SU ribbon together in two of the embriodery thread boxes. It's easy to store, because all the boxes are the same size.

Do you store your ribbon by color or by type? Just curious how others store/organize their ribbon...

Actually, I do both-

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=96960 I will edit if the link doesn't work-

My ribbon wall looks a little differently now, but basically all the SU ribbons are together by type, and all of the other ribbons go by color-

HTH!

Here's another method...big advantage is that the ribbon isn't wrapped around a card or clothespin so it doesn't need pressing.

I bought ribbon storage boxes from Oriental Trading. They were about 5 dollars apiece and hold 34 rolls of Offray Ribbon spools. SU! ones won't fit so I made one similar from a photo box I bought at the craft store. I saw a similar project in a Creating Keepsakes Magazine. I don't have links but I think they will be easy to find if you go to their websites. Good Luck in what you decide.

I store my ribbon in three ways:

(1) loose ribbon (by color family in clear plastic "paint cans")
(2) spools, 1st way (on long dowels hung horizontally on the wall above my craft table -- picture a drying rack)
(3) spools, 2nd way (in plastic boxes that you can buy at JoAnn's or Wal-Mart - there are two different types...they hold about 8-12 spools apiece, and have a nice slot through which you can stick the end of the ribbon so it doesn't unravel off of the spool)

I love my #2 option because I can see almost all of my ribbon collection (on spools) simultaneously right in front of me while at my craft table!

I store my ribbon in 3 ways. Loose carded ribbon or 2 yard sections hung on a hook by color family or color combo family such as pink and brown...(great for the blended color ribbons) then I keep all scraps in little square canning jars I got at michaels for a 1.00 each. (recycled candle jars with lids would work great for this too) they are labeled by color family too. then I have the ribbon storage hanging system from SU that holds spooled ribbon. I try to keep those in families but with the different sizes of containers and spool, thats sometimes hard to do unless you can devote lots of wall space.

I store my ribbon in two ways.

I have two hanging wire shelf organizers that I bought at a yard sale for $1 each. They are the type of thing that most people would buy to hang on the back of a pantry door or in a bathroom closet. One holds ribbon on rolls, by color, and the other holds ribbons in baggies, by color. The bagged ribbon is the ribbon I buy at the Offray Ribbon Outlet Store, just a few miles from my house. The ribbon comes in extremely large quantities, so to take it out of the baggies and roll it onto to anything takes up more space. I just counted and I have about 65 rolls of ribbon on the one organizer, with room for more.

I store mine by color- spools on a paper towel like dowel and loose in clear Mason (canning) jars. They are so cute lined up on my shelf. I also use the smaller canning jars for buttons, primas and other accessories. The jars are very inexpensive and I keep them uncovered so they are easy to get to.

Here is how I store mine.

This is a close up.

Here is the product label.

What I like about the Dripper Flipper is that it is adjustable. It telescopes, so if I have more or less spools than usual, I just pull out the end to make it longer or push it in to make it shorter. I try to keep the colors loosely together, but I'm just happy if the spool makes it back in there. I usually pull my spools and work with them at my table.

Default Ribbon Storage

I store mine ribbons on 6 foot dowels that I have hanging on my closet door (sliding doors). I took 2 long lengths of RIBBON of course, and tied them into two big loops, and knotted them in 4 places evenly on each side, and set the dowels into the loops. Everything is easily accessible, I can just pull and snip. Of course, I've also got 4 more dowels that need hung, (no more closet space because all the other doors in the house have ink hanging on them in the ZAC boxes (hanging off wreath hooks on both sides of the doors).

I have 2 6 foot sections of rain gutter mounted on a awall of my craft room. Every sized spool fits in in really great! Loose ribbon I have in the clear shoebox storage. I don't like the clothespins because the ribbon always seems to want to stayed curled!

I store in craft ziplocs -
Hole punched in top
Each color has its own binder ring.

Works GREAT... and all my (extensive) ribbon/fibers now stores in a space 1/4 the size and it is a breeze to find the perfect fiber!

Ingenious! You could paint and decorate the gutter too. Great idea.

I store my loose/leftover ribbon in glass jars sitting on my window sill, and the spools I put in a wooden ribbon organizer. You can see the rest of the photos of my "recently finished" craft room here.

Default storing ribbon

I loop my loose ribbons over the pant hangers you get fron the dry cleaners, they have a slightly sticky surface on the paper rod. I try to group by color, occasion (Halloween, X-mas), and then just cleanup my desk hangers. I have a shelf that has several old vintage door knobs attached that hold the hangers perfectly and I get to see all the wonderful colors. I must admit that I love ribbons and you can never have to many to choose from. Kim
