Reduce, reuse, recycle...

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - I found a really inexpensive way to organize my ribbon. I've seen lots of different systems but they all cost more money than I'm willing to invest. I have a large closet in my craft room and have nothing hanging on the bar. The last time I was at Dollar General, I picked up 12 plastic clothes hangers for a dollar. With a pair of wire cutters, I cut them on one side about four inches down from the join under the hook. I threaded my spools of ribbon according to color onto the hanger, taped the cut with Duck Tape (it's like the force, it has a light side, a dark side and holds the universe together) and hung it in my closet. It cost me next to nothing and that bar in the closet was just going to waste.

  1. would love to see pictures of how you have now stored your ribbon, sounds like a great idea. I have dowel sticks attached to one wall of my studio, but find that they get a bit dusty
