Re-organizing ribbon pieces
It seems like all I ever do in my scrap room is re-organize. I wonder if it has some kind of psychiatric term form it; you know like OCD. My newest task is my ribbon pieces. Most of it is in bags, bins and such. So I thought that if its out in the open, I would use it more. I had a thought. This is what I did. I got all of my baggies, bins, boxes etc where all of my ribbon and trims are kept. I separated my ribbon, fibers and lace/trims. This task is just for the ribbon for now. I have tons of the coated paperclips and 1 1/2 binder rings. I tied the ends of the ribbon to the paperclip. Then took the like-colored ribbons and placed the paper clips on the binder rings. I purchased some stick mount hooks ($1 for 8) and mounted them on the corner of my shelves. Viola! I've cleared up just about a whole shelf on my unit and it puts my ribbons out in the open to use! Here are some before and after pics:
Now, my only dilemma is how to organize the pieces of patterned/multi-colored pieces of ribbons. Leave me a comment on how you organize yours!
