I usually just trash mine. But I've heard others put them in a jelly jar and it looks very cute.

I have a few that I do keep depending on how short they are under and inch i will trash. unless I can fold it over put a staple in it an attach it to a tag. hope that helps. Scraps are never just scraps. http://forum.startascrapbook.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I normally use ziploc bags. Even though they aren't very pretty but, they fit in small spaces and you can get a lot of baggies in a drawer!

I put mine is baggies too... I never throw anything away either... i have little scraps of paper and cardstock... figure I will find a use for it someday... lol

I never throw anything away either. I like the zip lock baggies idea. Right now, the ones that don't fit on my dowel rods (and there are many) are just stuffed in a shoe box.

I only throw them away if they are less than an inch or so, othre then that they go in a clear shoe box.

I use zip locks too, but have I got a tip for those little one inch or less leftovers! You can fold them over and sew or adhere them to little squares or tabs and then thread fibers through the ribbon loops to make borders or hangers.

i keep them too.. I think i'm going to do the 'jar' idea someone suggested http://forum.startascrapbook.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I gotten some fibers (bernat kind) froma swap that LoriS had hosted a lil while back.. and i put them an empty pickle jar.. NOW LEMME tell ya... it's taking quite a bit for the pickle jar LID to de-smell of the pickles.. LOL but the jar itself.. is fresh and clean..

It's pretty cool, b/c i can see everything!! LOL

i like that jar idea too. i never throw anything out, and the look of my scraproom proves that...lol

All my ribbon is in a photo storage box with a label holder on the front. Someday if I ever get a room or the Hobby Hideaway I will change to a dowel type system.

My kitties steal my small pieces of ribbon, but sometimes I get to use them on tags. I like the jar idea too. I have a pickle jar that is almost empty, sorry kitties no more ribbon for you. http://forum.startascrapbook.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Countryrose great tip on the 1 inch or shorter ones. I will try that one.

My rule is 2"or less gets tossed. I don't think I have ever had anything leftover smaller than that anyhow.
