I love it when packages of ribbon arrive on my doorstep! All the colorful rolls of different sizes and designs just make me smile!

So when these two new boxes arrived, I looked around at my studio and decided that I need more ribbon storage!

I love these little racks that hang on the wall, but they are nearly full and I haven't been able to locate more of them. Plus, my really large spools/rolls do not fit on the narrow wire shelves.

Elfa, sold at the Container Store, makes some wonderful storage systems that I LOVE. They are pretty pricey, so I try to only buy them during a big sale! My larger spools fit in the larger drawers, but they get really heavy and so the drawers are hard to open and close sometimes.

I even use Beanie Baby boxes for ribbon storage. I like the way I can see right inside without even opening the container.

I have even resorted to the tried and true stacking plastic baskets. They just are not near as nice as the Elfa, though!

I plan to do a little online looking for better ribbon storage this week, so if you have any ideas or solutions, please share!

I would think I had died and gone to heaven just to be in front of all those ribbons.

I use this toy storage thingy. It works great for large rolls and you can fit alot in it. Dont mind my mess-my craft room is a bit wrecked right now. LOL

Wow Jena--Love that idea! Colorful, too! Thanks for sharing.

Wow! That's a lot of ribbon. Have you thought about adding another wing onto your house to store it all :-)

Very cool! I wonder if you couldn't build something utilizing a dowel rod to hang them?? Hmmm . . . I'll cogitate this for awhile. Gorgeous stash of ribbons!!
