I am a confessed ribbon junkie. I can not pass up a ribbon rack, a ribbon sale or the $1 bin ribbons. I buy lots on spools and even more by the yard. About a year ago ribbon storage became a delima for me. I didn't have a good storage system. I hated the ribbon cards, I didn't want to take the ribbon on spools off and I wanted to be able to easily see all the ribbons I have at one time.
The solution to my storage problem came in two forms. 1. A handy dad and some wood scraps. 2. The ribbon bag at Felicia's Scrapbooks.
Here is the ribbon tower my dad fabricated for my mom and myself. I've thought of painting it, maybe decorating it a bit but then I'd be without easy ribbon access so that hasn't happened.
Here is a phot of the ribbon bag. I love this bag, it holds like 200 yards of ribbon. It's easy to see what you have and it's very portable.
