RIBBON, RIBBON, RIBBON--WHERE TO STORE IT ALL???
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!
