The Big O

I got your attention, huh?
Since we have moved, my life has seemed turned upside down. The one thing that I normally can control is my crafting space. Well, when we moved I pretty much just threw it all in boxes hoping to get it organized after we settled. I am just now getting around to it.

I am a HUGE fan of ribbon. I just love it so much. I am not sure why I love it really, I have no girls, but I do. So, sometimes I splurge, telling myself that it is for this or for that, but normally I make one thing and then it just sits in a box in my crafting space.

I have altered an idea I saw a while ago {on a blog I cannot remember- if I do, I will post it} about how to organize your ribbon. The original idea was to use clothes pins that do not have hinges and tie a know in the ribbon... I am lazy, so I bought the ones with hinges, no knots, just wrap and VIOLA!

Just clip the ribbon and start to wrap and I use a straight pin when done... If you want more kid friendly, you can use tape to fasten it.

And there you have it, no more crazy piles of spools of ribbon.
* of course I have waaay more ribbon than this, so I have to buy another jar...


  1. I like this idea - all my ribbons are sitting in hat boxes - 3 BIG hat boxes!! I like ribbon too!!!

  2. I love this idea! I have a mess of ribbon everywhere!


Leave me some comment love...
