Ribbon storage



Hello Crafteteers!

I am very lucky to have a craft room.  In my craft room I do card making, scrapbooking, beadwork, knitting, crocheting, drawing and a wee bit of sewing.  That is a lot of stuff in a tiny room so obviously storage is an ongoing problem. 

My wonderful husband has done some improvements to the room which has helped a lot.  Ribbon was still a problem...until last weekend.  I found an over the door shoe rack that uses rods to support the shoes.  The rods work very well to hold most of my ribbon.  What a great storage saver- I was able to take 7 photo boxes out of my craft room!!!

The shoe rack is made by Whitmor, part number 6486-1746.  I purchased it at Winners but I it also on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Whitmor-6486-1746-WHT-Over-The-Door-White-36-Pair/dp/B0019FOUQ0).   If you notice, there are two columns of rods in the Amazon ad- I removed the front set of rods for three reasons (1) reduce the weight of the unit (2) reduce the stress on the over the door brackets (3) reduce the amount of space the whole unit takes- I did not want the ribbon knocking over my stamps.
 
Thanks for stopping by and stay crafty!  :)

  2. What a great idea!! It looks fabulous, too!! My dad made me a cabinet to store ribbon and I outgrew it, so I used large knitting needles to hold the leftovers. I need something like this!! Thanks for the inspiration!! Have a great day :)
