Ribbon Storage

Here is how I store my ribbons .. I am sure many of you have tons of ribbons lying ard your area and or tangled up in jars. I know that many scrapbookers use those large ikea jars to keep your ribbons by color but I find that this way is the best to keep them using the least amount of space . I use DMC Thread Spokes and the DMC Thread keeper for this.



1) Folder and Spokes look like this. One Folder can keep up to 14 spokes and spokes are sold in packets of 10. I get them at Spotlight but have spotted them at art friend and most places that sell Cross Stich Stuff. The Folder Cost abt 1.79 each and a packet of Spokes is abt 1.99.

As the folders have Holes already punched they fit into most 2 ring Binders and I store them in the same Files as My Stamps. Files from Popular Bookstore.



My Ribbon Collection. They are sorted by Colors, or if I have many of the same kind but different colors (aka Polka Dotted, Grosgrain) they are kept by type.



This is how it looks filed...

This is a cool looking idea! Where do you find these DMC spokes and folders? Are the ribbons wound on each spoke -- it's kinda hard to tell from the photos.
