Okay so I was doing some year end cleaning and organizing and came across some ribbon I bought a while ago and apparently forgot I had. A clear indication that I have too much ribbon and scrapbook embellishments in general? No, of course not. You can never have too much ribbon. Who knows when the need for blue ric rac ribbon or red ribbon with little pom poms will arise? I have to be ready… 🙂
There are a lot of ribbon organization ideas out there. There are also a lot of ideas to use or recycle scrapbook paper scraps. I tend to combine the two thoughts to corral the never ending sea of ribbon I have accumulated over time.
Starting with a simple piece of scrap paper like this…
I just cut the paper into strips of paper and I don’t really worry about length and width. You just need enough to wrap around the ribbon once you fold the ribbon back and forth.
There you have it. From a pile of unruly goodness, to neatly organized goodness. 😉 I love my scrapbook ribbon. Can you tell?
Once you have them all wrapped, you can store them in pretty decorative bins, in mason jars to display, or in plastic storage bags categorized by color or by theme.
How do you use leftover scrapbook paper scraps? How do you creatively organize your ribbon collection? I would love to hear from you in the comments, or upload your ideas to Instagram and use hashtag #lacynicoleorg so that I can see your ideas.
