I {heart} Ribbon!

Last week I put in an order for 5 yards each of 55 different colors of grosgrain ribbon. I know, I know.. WHAT?! But I will actually use it! In fact I've already used some of it on two separate projects, and one of them is a card challenge! I'll have to wait to share the pics as it's actually a card for someone who I know is a regular follower of my blog and I want her to see it first, ;0)

So what does 275 yards of yummy, ribbony, goodness look like? Ta-da!



I've decided to store the ribbon, separated by color, in these food storage boxes that I found at Walmart for $0.50 a piece. It makes it super easy to find the color that I'm looking for and putting everything away again is a snap!


Edited to add : I purchased the ribbon from www.teapartyribbons.com ;0)

Great ribbon storage idea. I just organized mine, too, but I put it all in one big container, sorted by color and texture. I like how you've separated yours giving each container its own color . Hmmm...I may have to re-think what I've done! Looks great! TFS
