Ribbon Organizing Tip!

There is NO other scrapbook supply that I collect more than FABULOUS ribbon!!! Yards and Yards of FABULOUS ribbons!!!!

This often poses a problem though for a lot of people.....Especially a STORAGE problem! I know we all have our own ways of storing ribbon but I just wanted to share what "I" do and organize MY ribbons!!!!

I use book rings!!! You can find them in varying sizes and colors and I organize mine by color. All of my pink ribbons on one ring all of my blue on another and so on and so forth then I have some peg board that I keep all of my supplies on and I hang them off of a long pronged hook OR you can get and old paper towel holder and clip your book rings to that! Or something ive done in the past was to put them on a wooden dowel hung up in my scrap space.

Here is a photo of my example:

A springy HB card for ya!

I still have a few scraps of my March kit so I thought I would make a card from them. Love the colors of the papers from the kit and they pair up with kraft cardstock perfectly! I cut out 1 big square from kraft cardstock, 4 squares from the green pattern paper, a scalloped circle from the red Jenni Bowlin paper, and some smaller circles from various cardstocks and then stamped Happy Birthday on the smallest circle. I liked how it looked but wanted to add a little pizazz by adding some ribbon and the butterfly. If you haven't tried a springy card, now's the time. Be sure to post it to the gallery so we can see it!!
