I have a small addiction to ribbon. I have tried to come up with many ways to store it and none have ever worked for me. I don't like keeping it on the rolls because they take up way too much room.
This is how I am doing it now. I am rolling all of my ribbon onto doll clothespins found at Michaels or AC Moore. I used to secure the ribbon with a piece of tape on the end but as you will see in the later photos, the tape kept coming undone. Now I am using a sewing pin to secure the ribbon. It works fantastic.
I hope you feel inspired to come up with a ribbon storage system that works for you.
