I was recently in my craft room looking for a decorative ribbon scraps for a project and I could not find it, since I had them all in a transparent box and although some were rolled up, others were in plastic bags and others had already been unwound and what I had was a huge mess. So I said … this has to be organized right now.
So I had them all mixed with pieces of fabrics, a real disaster.
And this is what I did to organize my ribbons. I looked for some wooden sticks, the ones used for popsicles, and I used them to organize them. I fixed them in place using pins. I know you could just use pins when they are practically new but when you only have scraps it works well. I used those that are natural color, but you can still use the ones that are available in Dollar Tree that are colored and according to the color of the stick you organize your ribbons. (They are thinner but they still work)
I used glass jars to accommodate them and have them accessible. If you do not use your decorative ribbon scraps very often, I recommend a glass jar that has a lid to prevent dust from getting to them. I organized them by colors. I added a black chalkboard label to identify the jars with the word “cintas” which means ribbons.
It is not necessary to organize them by colors, but it is easier to find the color or pattern you need.
I hope this idea helps you to organize yours decorative ribbon scraps. See you soon!!
