Organizing Craft Ribbon

My ribbon is displayed in glass jars on a shelf in my craft room.  
I think it's so Very Pretty and it's easy to see and get to the ribbon.
 I found these great jars at Walmart
 and most of the ribbon too... 
I am attracted to the ribbon aisle . . .
Can you tell?
I just love it, and use it for so many things.
and it's nice having a variety. 
Sometimes, just a piece of ribbon can Inspire Me :)
Here is the How To on wrapping the ribbon...
 I found these great clothespins at the dollar tree
Begin by sliding one end of the ribbon into the clothespin
wrapping the ribbon . . .
. . . over the end to hold it in place
 twirl the ribbon tightly around the clothespin.
 When your finished, slide a pin in . . .
. . . and it holds the ribbon in place. 
Put the wrapped clothespins in a jar & you've got  
a ribbon display of Delightful Order!

  5. Thank you for that clothes pin idea - that's something that's always bugged me - that the ribbon floats around! Great tip!

  6. I love it! I have seen the clothes pins used for ribbon before, but I love how you displayed them by color in the jars. Very pretty! I would love if you would link up to "Simplify for the New Year" at A Home Made by Kiki!

  8. I just have mine smushed down into a big jar, and it looks pretty like that, but I love your clothespin idea! (And I even have some of those clothespins.) Looks like I'll be reorganizing my ribbons soon. Your jars just look so pretty, like candy in an old-fashioned general store!

  9. I like the clothes pins as ribbon holders because you can store more ribbon in a small space.

  22. LOVE this idea - it's a space saver, pretty to look at and quick to do!

  23. That is a super cool idea! I found some similar jars at our local Dollarama, but they don't have screw lids. Anyhow, I think this is a lovely idea. It gives your space some color not to mention organization. Very cool.
    I am following from Tater Tots and Jello link up. I didn't link up because there was sooo much already. I hope you come by to visit.
    Cheers!

  26. LOVE!!!! I just reorganized my ribbon by creating a ribbon rack, but now I am totally crushing on your idea here!!

    Here's what I did, but it seems really lame compared to yours. I'm really jealous right now!

  27. I have the perfect alternative container ,similar, that you can get free. If you are a rice eater--there are different rices that come in clear plastic containers with screw covers looks about same size. I buy this rice and have many empty containers that I just couldn't throw away because I knew they could be used for something. Check them out. Now I have a project to use them for. Additional plus, UNBREAKABLE. I have been using recycling toilet paper centers to wrap left over ribbons when there is a large amount. It really keeps them in nice condition for the next year. Thanks for all the hints you have given us.

  28. This is an awesome idea as my ribbons are an absolute mess.

  29. YES!!! Such a great idea! I actually was given a bunch of these clothspins and do not like them for actually hanging clothes, but had saved them knowing I could come up with some kind of craft to do with them if nothing else. I hate how much space a ribbon spool takes up. You just gave me a "busy hands" project for the next time my husband wants my company on the sofa, while he watches something I'm not particularly interested in. Thank you!
