Ribbon 411 (and a sneak peak!)

Edit Artikel

Ribbon!!!  Gah!  Is there no fool proof way of organizing it?  If we can send people to the moon, shouldn’t we be able to cure ribbon woes?  I tried everything—boxes, clips, spools, hocus pocus, magic…you name it.  Nothing worked for me.  Then I saw some inspiration at Hobby Lobby with a little card, and I knew I was onto something.  Or Cropper Hopper was onto something.  xprd119192_m

Step 1—wait.  Step 0.1:  Don’t pick up anything in the background of your pictures.  Ok…

Step 1:  Gather the right materials.  I got all my ribbon around, cut up some cardboard I had laying around (more on that later), and bought a cute basket at the dollar store.


Step 2:  Sort.  Once I had all my ribbon in one place,  I went through and organized them as best I could by color.  Step 2.5:  Realize I have a bit of an issue with green ribbon.


Step 3:  Wrap and tape, wrap and tape, wrap and tape until you have a pretty little basket full of pretty little ribbons.


While the other ideas were good for other people, I knew I wanted as much of my ribbon together as possible.  And I wanted it condensed.


Later in the week, I’ll be able to show you where I’m storing it. Wanna see a sneak peak of where I’m storing it?


 You guessed it.  Right there in that flower bouquet.  It’s so condensed, you can’t even see it.
