Ribbon Organization

I'm determined to get some things organized around my "nest" before the next "nestling" arrives and so I was very excited when Melissa from The Ribbon Ring sent me these ribbon organization kits.
This solution to organizing ribbon is a solution that is so simple that

I thought, "why didn't I think of that?"
Well, since I didn't I'm so glad Melissa did.
It is the best solution I've found to organize my ribbon.
I keep ribbon that comes on gifts so that I can reuse it.
The problem is storing it, I use to keep it in this large glass jar.
Every time I needed some ribbon I would have to dig through the container,
usually dumping half of it out to find the right color and size.
Then I'd have to flat iron it so it wasn't all wrinkly.
No more.
It took awhile to flat iron all the ribbon and put them on the tags,
but it was well worth it.
Now they are grouped in like colors and I can just grab them off and use them.
They can be hung anywhere and won't get wrinkled anymore.
If you have bolts of ribbon that you keep in drawers you just cut off one yard and put a little round sticker on the tag that lets you know you have more elsewhere.
Isn't that genius!?

If you're looking for a deal, occasionally Melissa puts coupon codes on her blog.
Check it out!
