Well, I have a lot of ribbon. No... no, not just a lot, A LOT of ribbon! I mentioned to my friend Aamie (who happens to be the one I got the desk from) that I wanted to take the tangled mass of ribbon I had and organize it into a pretty display using an idea I had seen on another blog (unfortunately, I can't remember which one!). I told Aamie that I would love to wrap old fashioned clothes pins with the ribbon and display it in a large jar. Well, Aamie, being the wonderful friend she is left a package of clothespins on my porch one day as a pick me up when I was in dire need of one. That's the kind of friend Aamie is. :) Well, I took to wrapping the package she gave me and ended up using the whole package of pins. The quantity in a pack is 30! Guess how many more I had to buy? 2 packages! Whoa!
Here is my pretty jar.
Just in case you are wondering, that isn't all of the ribbon I wrapped. I have another full basket. See...
And this, well, this just makes me giddy!
Here are some other clever ribbon storage ideas I have seen lately.
