is your stash of ribbon out of control? 

mine was. 

even though i had it separated into cute jars, it just seemed to always end up in a mess.  a huge mess.  some on the roll.  some off of the roll. 

a while back i had seen where nichole heady had used old-fashion clothespins to wrap hers.  you can see her jars here. and here.  

whatta great idea! 

i found a huge (and i do mean huge) jar at my good friend lisa’s garage sale.  her mom (thanks, Pat) sold it to me for only 50cents!  it works perfectly! 

it holds over 80 pins full of ribbon!!! 

nichole suggests using a stick pin to adhere the ribbon to itself.  i chose to wrap the ribbon, then using a piece of double-sided tape, i simply stuck the end of the ribbon to itself.  on some rolls, you can see a piece of masking tape….that is how they were attached to the rolls i bought them on, so as i pulled it off of that, i left the tape on it and used it on the clothespin.  (does that make sense?) 

i also had a much smaller jar, so i decided to keep ribbon that i will be using soon, like Christmas ribbon, in it for quick access.

i found my clothespins at our local Dollar Tree store.  packages of 20 for $1.  so far, i have used at least 100 of them.  it looks so much prettier and it saves on space! 

if your ribbon has you wrapped up, give it a try!

  1. Thank you for the encouragment on my blog… Love the ribbon organizing. I need to do something with mine. I should probably start by going through it and getting rid of some I’ll never use! 🙂 Bye for now!
