Hey guys! Diana here sharing one of my favorite storage tips with you. With so many great storage ideas out there, it’s important to remember that when it comes to storage, one size does not fit all. Before going full steam ahead with your next storage project, evaluate your unique storage personality and needs.
I once saw a beautiful ribbon storage idea on Pinterest. I spent hours taking my ribbons off the spools and wrapping them around little pieces of cardboard. When I was finished it looked amazing—so neat and compact—it was truly beautiful!
However, every time I took a piece of ribbon off the cardboard square it was creased where it folded around the cardboard. Since I’m a bit of a perfectionist, I ended up ironing each piece of ribbon before I used it. It didn’t take long to realize that there is a reason ribbon comes on spools. #storagefail
Now my ribbon is stored neatly (on the spool) in photo boxes which fit perfectly on the shelf in my craft room closet. I have them sorted by color family which allows me to quickly find the right ribbon for my project. Best of all—no ironing required!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you found my storage tip helpful!
