Ribbon Organization!!

I LOVE ribbon. I have yet to meet a ribbon I didn't like. I have hundreds of them and they have always been a challenge for me to store.

I used to store most of my ribbons in little tiny Cropper Hopper embellishment boxes stored in a larger blue case. I arranged them according to color and that worked well for a while. Well, until I got up to 5 boxes. LOL

I needed a new system and pronto. I had been eyeing and debating the Ribbon Ring for a while and finally decided to take the plunge and order it.

I was EXTREMELY surprised that it arrived the very next day!! Granted, it wasn't going very far, but STILL!! The NEXT day? That's crazy fast!! I immediately got to work putting my ribbons on the tabs. It took me several days to get it all done (not working continuously! LOL), but it was worth it! I grouped the tabs of ribbons on rings according to color and hung the rings on little Command hooks I stuck to the wall.  Now I can see all of my ribbons and finding one to match my project will be a lot faster and easier. I hope. :)
