Saturday Spaces - Pretty Ribbon Storage

Hey friends...I've been working hard finishing up my taxes, but I did find time to work on a little craft room organization.  I don't know about you, but it seems like I keep searching for just the right way to store my ribbon, so that it is accessible AND mobile so I can take it with me wherever I'm crafting in the house.  I decided a few years back I liked the look of clear glass jars, but *somehow* the ribbon came off the spool and I found myself just stuffing the ribbon in them...not so pretty, right?

Then, I saw this pretty little picture on Pinterest here and knew I found a way to store and display
my ribbon that is so pleasing to the eye!
It only took me a couple of hours to wind most of my stash aroumd these wooden craft sticks.  They come in different sizes, I used ones that are about 5 7/8 inches long by 3/4 inch wide.
They work well for different ribbons widths too...
For the wider ribbons, I decided to keep them on the spools and store them in a larger glass jar.
Nothing like functional and pretty!  How do you keep your ribbon stash handy?
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Beautiful way to display you ribbons, Kimberly. Ribbon is one of my bigger challenges! I've tried a few different tricks but the ribbon always ends up crammed in the drawer! Maybe that's a sign I have TOO much!

    1. There is no such thing as too much ribbon in my book!!! Girl, I have tried so many things, will let you know how this turns out!


I appreciate your thoughtful comments!
