Ribbon Organization Project

I saw where a fellow scrapper organized her ribbon by doing this....Okie's Ribbon Storage. I really like how it came out and thought I REALLY NEED to do for my ribbon. But I didn't have the plastic that she used for the bobbins and it freaked me out a bit on how long it seemed to take her. THEN I was reading a Hair Bow blog this week where the title of her post was "Get Organized Using What You Have"...This lady used 3x5 cards...I thought I have LOTS of 3x5 cards leftover from when my boys were in school and used them to make flashcards to help them study. SOOOOO my project for this last Sunday was to organize my ribbon...

First take 2 3X5 index cards and fold them in half...

Next Staple to hold it closed...one worked for me...

Then I taped one end of my ribbon and started wrapping.....

Keep wrapping until it is full and i used another piece of tape to keep it put...you could pin it or use a rubber band....
 I then used the storage container that I had stored my ribbon rolls in...I'm going to buy ones that are not so tall down the road....I went from 3 of these full, plus a ribbon bag...plus rolls stored here and there to two of these....organized by color....

DONE!!!

I love this and anything that saves that much space is worth the time. I may have to try it
