    Alright, how is everyone organizing their lace. I got this hecka giant bag of lace for 2 bucks at a craft estate sale sometime back. I have one ribbon rack but any other ideas are appreciated.

    you could hang a dowel rod and wrap the lace around it and attach the dowel rod to a piece of peg board

    also use cardboard from toilet paper to wrap lace around

    take small pieces of cardboard and wrap the lace around it and store in a plastic shoe box

    cardboard tubes from wrapping paper

    surfing now to find some other ideas for links for us:

    Excellent. I like this idea. And I can even put a T-pin in to hold it in place. Hmmmm

    I use carboard pieces and wrap each kind and hold it with a pin or scotch tape.

    I like that idea Suz. It would take up less space than the paper towel rolls. I just have so much.
