Get Organized: Ribbon Storage

Today I'm starting a little series, Get Organized.  Ya, I really need it.  I have lots of stuff just laying around with nowhere to go.  It's been that way since I moved.  It's a shame really. I finally have my very own art/craft room, but it's looking ugly right now.   So, I've got a few ideas for organizing things cheaply... all of our spare cash went to fixing our fence and buying appliances.  You know how that goes.

So... my first organization project is a ribbon storage box!



The process is simple... fold index cards in half, staple them, and wrap your ribbon around them.  Then store them in a shoe box.


I did not come up with this idea completely on my own, I saw it online somewhere and I neglected to pin the photo of it or even bookmark the site.  So, if I ever do find the genius who first came up with this, I will gladly provide a link.


And decorating the box is definitely optional, but the ribbon looks so pretty inside the box I just had to make the outside pretty too :)
