Ribbon Wrap Up

Remember a few weeks ago when I mentioned my dilema about ribbon storage? Somehow despite my declaration of NOT going to do tackle this I did it anyway.

I started on this drawer since I had been working on some Christmas related projects.

Found this idea on 2Pea's. Thought it was easy enough & took up less space so I gave it a try.

ETA: I cut 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock into 1" x 11" wide strips then wrap it around the ribbons, tape it closed & cut off the excess cardstock.

This pic shows almost the entire drawer worth of ribbon in a med sized basket. How cool is that??
I'm now working on the middle drawer. I even have Marissa helping me, while we sit & watch TV.I'm thinking this drawer unit might be finding a new home somewhere in the basement filled with toys soon!

Oh, my gosh! Thanks so much for sharing this idea! You should see my ribbon, out of control! LOL Ribbon, and acrylic stamp organization are on my to do list!
You have been busy creatively, too! I will be back, when I can read each word! Never enough time!!
Hope you are enjoying your day!

Wow, what a transformation!
What is that around the ribbon - are they rubber bands? I really need to do this.
I also love the basket idea because when they are mixed together like that you kind-of see them a different way and get color combo ideas.
