Store Ribbon In BasketI put my ribbon into a small white basket and thread it through the holes. It stays organized and is easy to access.

When I get balloons for my birthday or get Get Well Soon balloons, they eventually go flat. However, the ribbon attached to them is still good. I cut it off, cut a cardboard bobbin from an empty cereal box, then wrap the ribbon around it.

I have several dozen large spools of ribbon, many that are wired. Any suggestions on how to store them and save space at the same time.

I store my ribbon spools on the long plastic wands that are used on mini blinds. I save the wands when I replace my blinds. Then slide the spools on the wand and either put the wand on a piece of wire or the wire shower curtain holders so they can be hung in the closet out of sight.


When you are in need of ribbon, you can pull off what you need without disrupting the rest of the ribbon. Hope this helps.

I have an old lamp chain strung between two hooks hanging from the ceiling. I also have lots of rolls of ribbon, so I did the same thing I did with all my "designer" duct tape. I untwist a wire hanger (leaving the twists intact so I can just twist it back together), straighten out the rest of the hanger, and bend in half. I load the rolls onto the hangers, retwist the ends together, and hang from the chain hanging from my ceiling.
