Messy Ribbons vs Tidy Ribbons

I spent nearly 4 hours yesterday tidying up my craft ribbons, I had them all over the palce and in lots of different sized containers so I went to the Range and bought some new storage containers and thought I would share with you the before and after photos :)

OH MY Word Donna, this is fab you have to be the ribbon Queen I have never seen so much ribbon unless in a shop lol.

Tab said...

Well done you! I sat and did mine the other week and wrapped them around pegs. I bought a pack of 100 wooden pegs, thinking that would be enough and I ended up sending the hubster out for more pegs LOL. How on hearth I had managed to hoard that much ribbon is beyond me LOL! {That's not counting all the ribbon that is on reels as well LOL} So much better though now, for one, you can see what you have got!
Hugs Tab xxx

Wow Donna, I bet you were glad when they were finished.
I don't have all that many, but I did mine a week ago, I had the boxes to put them in, and cut up the middles of toilet rolls to wrap the ribbon around. lol

...and they're colour co-ordinated too, they look so beautiful are neat and lovely like that. Perfect little boxes too Donna. Well done, that was a mammoth task, and it's always a good feeling to have sorted things out I know. I've just done my embellishments box and it's so much easier to find everything now. I think we must all be getting the spring cleaning bug, but in my case it will only be for craft stash LOL! Chris x

Now that's what I call eye candy. How fabulous to have it all stored so perfectly. Well done Donna, you deserve a medal for taking the plunge.:)

That's better, well actually that's a whole lot better. I can't believe that the pics are the same ribbons. You've done a great job of tidying them up. How great that you've finally got some more storage for them. It will now be much easier to find your them because they're in colours!!! I can't believe how neat and tidy they are. How long did it take you??? LOL
