Ribbon, Ribbon, and More Ribbon

I needed ribbon to finish my kids Valentine's this year, and, what a mess they are.  Remember this?  It is still awesome. and, I use it all the 
time. 


You can see it HERE.  I, however, have a lot more ribbon than storage 
places on that rack.  






 YIKES.  This is what I started with.  A tangle of ribbon and lace.



I gathered up the loose ribbon and taped it onto a toilet paper roll.  For those fly away pieces, I used a hair pin to hold it in place.



Then I sorted all the ribbon by color.  I have a lot of themed ribbon (i.e., Christmas, Halloween, etc.), so, I put that together in a container.  Then, I have some doubles, and, my lace.  I put them in another container.



I tried to put like colors together on a rod.



I got this package at Michael's when I made my Ribbon Rack.  I think they are large sucker sticks.



Those Dowels, fit perfectly through the holes.  I fit four rods in there.



The loose ends of the ribbon, I threaded through the holes on the side of my Dollar Tree container I have had forever.




Put a label on it and sat in on top of the other two bins I have in my laundry room.  I will show more pictures of that after I organize it, yet AGAIN.  My kids always ask me why I have to reorganize the laundry room and the pantry.  My reply is always YOU.........

My ribbon and I are so HAPPY.

Thanks for stopping by.

XOXO
