    solution that I discovered several yrs. ago on the Carol Duval Show. I used a photo box, grommets and tiny clothespins from Wally World. You can also use a shoebox, but it won't hold as many!

    Now Yorkiemomma, I have to ask...how many of those do you have? because if I stored my ribbons that way I'd probably need 10 lol

    Very clever. The second row of ribbon - is it pulled underneath the divider and through the grommet? Cute clothespin idea too.

    Hey Bonnie...no, there are grommets are BOTH sides! That's the reason I used grommets instead of eyelets...they are so much cheaper!

    WOW Lori...you've got some ribbon supply! Actually, I have a couple of these plus I have a couple of the Target white containers with drawers that have 16 dividers that hold some of my ribbon, and I have a hanger underneath one of my shelves that has a dowel that holds spools of ribbons. I also designed a spool that I can cut out on my CraftRobo that holds scraps or 1 yd. pieces of ribbons. Here's a photo:



    I have started to buy ribbon by the yard and if I use a lot of it I go back and buy more. The ribbon on my red poinsettia Christmas card was some I bought by the yd.



    I have a good bit of ribbon BUT nothing like you've got!

    tiny clothespins
    Love the idea.....clothespins who knew i was using tape and that is a pain in the neck. I did the same type thing with my fibers i put holes in a shoe box and then put them in the box so they were all together not that neat but atleast it is all together. My ribbons are on 2foot dowels on my wall I have 4 need like 8 I was on a ribbon kick when they had ribbon by the yard on 75% off bought all that i could carry.

    This is awesome thanks for posting.

    I don't have a lot of ribbon, but I do have some and I was also using the tape method and I agree it's a pain.

    I have some ribbon on wooden spools (from Michael's) and I use a straight pin to keep them from unraveling.

    Oh it sounds like your stash might come close to mine I love those little spools, I thought about getting the cropper hopper ones that are similar to what you've made but I would have had a fortune in them. I have made like a larger version of those to fit in boxes so that I can open up the box and flip through them. I'll have to drum up a pic. I have been doing very good about not buying anymore ribbon even if it is on sale!
