So a few weeks ago I asked the ladies in the scrapbooking group I help moderate how they store their ribbon. Up to this point I had been storing it in this plastic bin that has all these seperated square sections. I had taken all the yarn off the spools, wrapped it around these cardboard pieces and stored it in there. But once that was filled and I started getting more yarn I just threw it in a shoe box but soon that got filled up. So I was trying to come up with a easy cheap way to store yarn that would also make it easily accessible since I also hate taking it off the spools and it just hanging there. So i know they sell all these different kinds of bags and stuff were you put the ribbon inside and pull it out through the hole and I thought well maybe I can make my own. We eat a lot of lunch meat around here and I get the Deli Selects kind that comes in those plastic Glad reusable containers so we have tons of these so I thought why don't I put them to good use. And I poked holes in the tops of two of them and stuffed them with ribbon and pulled the ribbon through the holes. And this is how it turned out:
I haven't used it yet so I don't know how tangled up they are inside there. Hopefully not to bad and that they will work like I want them too. i have 14 ribbons in each. I have enough ribbon left to fill up two more. At least that is until I get some more!
