Ribbon Organizer

Don't forget to go here to enter the CSN Stores Giveaway and link up to FFA!



I've seen so many awesome ribbon organizers by other bloggers. The problem? They won't work for me. I like to scrapbook and I usually get together with other women to scrapbook. I use ribbon on a lot of my scrapbook pages. The problem with the awesome ribbon organizers is that they aren't portable! I need to be able to take my ribbon with me. The other problem was that all of the spools were taking up a ton of space.

Here's what I came up with!


Buy this pipe tubing that's glued together in the plumbing section. It probably has an official name but I don't have a clue what it is! It's only about $2.00. I then cut 3 sections with plain old scissors to the length I wanted.


I then spray painted the heck-o-la out of them.


Take your ribbon and put a straight pin in the end to hold it in place.


Wrap you ribbon all the way around and use another straight pin to hold it in place.


Wrap all of your ribbon and then hang up! I used velcro on each end of each tube and hung these in my craft room closet.


If I were to do this again I probably would skip the spray paint and just use the black/gray tube. The spray paint started cracking a little. I was ok with that since they were just hanging in the closet!


Funny story... I went scrapbooking yesterday and completely forgot these hanging in my closet!!


How do you organize your ribbon?
