My new Ribbon Storage System
I was thinking of getting a wire mesh basket to put my ribbons in and threading them through the sides so I could pull bits out as needed, and I've looked in Ross a few times to try to get my hands on a suitable container, but I saw a better idea on the Crafty Storage Blog - a few days ago they featured someone who put all their spools of ribbon into a woven basket and threaded them through the back... that sounded perfect to me - baskets are MUCH cheaper than those expensive plastic boxes or metal tins, and you could fit a heck of a lot of ribbon into the right-sized basket.
Seagrass basket from Ross - $6.99
Lazy Susan from Ikea - $7.99 (I think, I bought it some time ago)
Time taken to sort and thread all my ribbons - a couple of hours
Having my ribbons stored where I can actually see them all at the same time - priceless
