    Tip for Ribbon Users

    Just recently I ran across a metal slacks/pants hanger, 5 pair, that has rubber on the hangers. I took the rubber off and put my ribbon spools on and replaced the rubber tip and now I have my ribbon in plain site. I'll try putting the picture I took of it on here. I don't know if this has been out there before, but is new to me.

    Cool Such a Fabulous Idea!

    I have no where near that amount of ribbon....but am sure going to start buying and getting a collection. I just started making fabric bowls and some other smaller gift style crafts and ribbons will make wonderful additions. Thank you for sharing.

    I have alot of ribbon spools. for now I have them stored in boxes and storage drawers. I like the idea of hanging them up. I'll have to keep my eye out for some pants hangers that I might be able to use. thanks for sharing.

    That's what I love about this site, everyone has such great low-cost ideas and we love sharing!!! I just might implement this in my room, as I happen to have an empty one of these hangers in my closet! Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy New Year to Everyone!

    I use a clear shoe rack hung on the back of my craft room door for ribbons, not all of my ribbons are on rolls, and I like to buy yard cuts and collect it where I can, so the clear shoe slips are perfect for storage. I love it.

    Are there any other ribbon storage tips out there? I have just started working with ribbon. Right now I store them in a plastic shoe box. There are not enough in there to keep them standing up side by side yet. I know, what am I waiting for, get some more, right? LOL! How do you keep the ribbon from unwinding from the spool while you are storing it. I want to avoid a rat's nest for ribbon! Thanks! I like the ideas already mentioned, but I don't have a door to hang a clear shoe rack from. I like the hangar idea, but I have a cat and I need some way to secure the end of the ribbon on the spool so she can't unwind them. I don't have a place to hang the hangars, but I am sure I could set something up. Can I just say that since I have started using ribbons, I have found it is like fabric. I want it ALL!!!!!! Too funny! Thanks in advance for any ideas you give me!
