Ribbon Organization by Jeanie Cheeseman, Columbus. OH
I work a lot with narrow satin ribbon of all colors. The individual spools can be annoying to keep up with when your hands are already full with the craft you are working on. To organize these spools, I take a regular wire hanger, untwist the top, string each spool (grouped by color) through the hole on the wire and re-twist the wire top. Ribbon ends should roll off the spools in the same direction and be attached to the spools with a straight pin or tape. It is convenient to use and can easily be stored by the hook top of the hanger.
Pantyhose Ribbon Holder by Shara George Lynnwood, Washington
I use a lot of ribbon in most of my crafts and we all know how difficult it can be to keep all that ribbon on the spool. One of the neatest things I've discovered for my ribbon is to cut off the legs of pantyhose and put the spools in them. One will hold as many as you like and they will not unwind as the hose snugs up against the spool. You can see the color you want and reach down the inside of the hose and get it very easy. IT'S GREAT!
