What's Up Wednesday

Hello everyone.  I am going to show you my green ribbon organizer.  I had 2 overflowing baskets of ribbon.  I hardly used the ribbon I had because I didn't feel like digging through the mess.  So I came up with this solution.  I saved some cereal type boxes and cut out some rectangles that would fit in a little wooden box I have.  I then used 2 of my circle punches to make half circle slots for the ribbon to sit in.  I used the smaller punch for the narrow ribbon and the larger punch for the wider ribbon. 

I used rubber bands to hold the ribbon onto the card.
 I used small clothes pins to hold the ribbon onto the card while I wrapped the other ribbon.  After my first card I decided to punch some half circles in the sides of the card to hold the elastic.
Here is my stash of ribbon now neatly organized in one little box.  I can now see all the ribbon I have.  I do get creases in my ribbon but it hasn't been that big of a problem.  This was a free super easy, green project.  Thanks for stopping in.
Pin It!

I heart green (and CHEAP) organizing ideas. Great one! I may have to copy it.

And I must admit my first thought w/ your photo was "that ribbon isn't the color green..." HA!

Thanks for sharing!
