I've spent the last half an hour sorting out a ribbon jar that was hiding away at the end of the craft table. Jammed full of ribbons, so they were mostly out of sight and therefore, mostly unused.
However i recently saw a girl demonstrate a great ribbon storage tip on YouTube, all you need is a book ring and some paperclips or safety pins.
Now the few strands i had are hanging straight instead of crumpled in a jar, on show so i can see what i have......and it adds colour to my craft room.
Great cheap little tip!
