We LOVE ribbon. I know, you're probably asking "What don't you love?", but we do. Between the the three of us, we could open up a small ribbon store. The thing is--you NEED ribbon. So many projects call for it. It is a necessity--right up there with buttons, fabric and Mod Podge. You can't just have one spool of ribbon.
Well, one of the challenges with having a lot of ribbon is how and where to store it. It's all fine and dandy when they are nice and neat on the spool, but what about all those little scraps? Where are you going to keep those? Never ones to walk away from a good challenge, we decided to turn some empty jars into ribbon jars. You like? We found this vintage label at The Graphics Fairy. She is one amazing lady with gorgeous graphics. Now our massive amounts of loose ribbon is neatly put away in the craft closets making our husbands quite happy with one less thing laying out and about.
Nicole Heady has another way to store all those loose ribbons especially for those with shelves that can display your stash. We love this look and think we may have to pick up a few wood clothes pins ourselves and some shelves to display them on. Honestly, if your ribbon stash looked this cute would you be able to hide it in a craft closet? I know we couldn't. She has this wonderful tutorial on how you can make this ribbon jar. This would also make a fantastic gift for any crafter.
