Do you happen to know someone who has a ribbon stash that looks like this?
You don't have to admit it, but I will. My name is Pepper, and I am a messy ribbon keeper.
It doesn't bother me every day. But... on the days that I actually NEED ribbon, I end up feeling like the mice on Cinderella unraveling their tails, hoping they aren't in a knot.
I saw this cute idea ages ago, and finally put it to use in my craft corner.
What you will need:
Messy ribbon waiting to be organized
What I did:
First was the annoying part. I had to untangle at least one ribbon for re-organizing.
Then starting with one loose end, I placed it between the open space on the doll pin.
Holding securely, I began to wrap the ribbon around the doll pin to one side.
Once I had wrapped to one side, I started wrapping in the other direction.
I continued back and forth until the ribbon was all wrapped up.
To end the task, I secured the end with one simple pin.
Extra tip: You can secure ribbon to it's original cardboard holder with one simple pin.
Sound simple? Because it is!
You would be surprised at how many crafters' don't secure their ribbon!
