Hi! I finally got a system in place and have organized my ribbons. I actually repurposed a utensil tray and a bead organizer for scraps. it worked out nicely. I decided to include everyone in the giveaway since you all had such great ideas. This system works for me now but I'm sure I'll outgrow it soon. :) Pictures to come...(including pics of the giveaway) sorry, haven't been able to download them and I didn't want to keep you guys waiting anymore. Using Random.org the winner is: #18------------DEE-----------I posted from my iphone, but it's not here...so here we go again. I have a few different systems. The first is the shelf from Michaels that has two dowels on it. When I only had 60 rolls or so, I was able to fit them all there. As I started getting $1 deals and such, I started to put them in a drawer in my IKEA chest. They stay pretty organized in there. I use pins to keep the ribbon from unraveling. I also have a basket (similar to a mini laundry basket) that I got at Dollar Tree. I keep the 25 yard spools there. They usually stay in place. Finally, I have a clear paint gallon container that I keep the ribbon scraps in. That way, i can see whatever cuts I have.
I have been thinking of using the IKEA hanging wire baskets. They are the perfect size for the regular rolls.
