Back in October (see archives) I featured the fabulous ribbon storage by "the other" Lisa (Renee Young). Well someone asked me what the inside of the box looked like. Everytime I use ribbon from my box I feel guitly because I haven't posted the photo. So here it is:
It's not exciting, but let me explain. My previous method of storage was to wrap the ribbons/fibers around those little Cropper Hopper cards and store them in a floss box...I think I saw that's how Lisa Bearnson stored them. Which was time consuming, but a nice little activity to do with my Grandmother a few times a year. I also kept my spools in another separate box...not really efficient at all.
When Lisa created this fabulous idea she envisioned it as a storage for the spooled ribbon. So I have the spools on a dowel near the top and my loose or carded ribbons just flat on the bottom...they stick out through the holes in the box (from The Container Store)....see the post in the archives from October for full understanding of this concept.
My favorite ribbon(s)....I love Stampin Up's grosgrain ribbons...perfect weight, texture, width and price. My second favorite is black and white gingham...I hate pink and blue gingham patterned paper...but I love me some b&W gingham ribbon.
How do you store your ribbon & fibers?
