This week we are tackling our piles and piles of Ribbon...
I have a wonderful system for my ribbon organization and
I would love to share it with you!
Step #1: Gather all your ribbon together
Step #2: Do a quick sort of your ribbon into color families
Step #3: Cut some chipboard to fit into a photo box; I cut mine 4x7in. Now wrap your ribbon around the chipboard and secure with a pearl head pin. Keep your color families together.
Step #4: Place your ribbon cards into the photo box.
You will be amazed at how much ribbon you can fit in these boxes!
Believe me, I have tried so many different ways and bought so many different organizers for my ribbon...all to end in disappointment. Trust me, this works and if you are a visual person (like me) then place the lid under the box so you can see the beautiful colors of ribbon. If you would rather keep a tidier appearance in your creative space, then simply place the lid on the box and create a label for your ribbon box with the color group listed on it. I hope you will give it a try...it's sure to bring you much creative JOY!
Enough typing...time to go work on my PiLeS!
Happy Ribbon Sorting!
