Crafters have tons of ribbon. Along with a hot glue gun and glitter, it’s a crafter’s staple piece. And if you’re a crafter with tons of ribbon then you know how messy it can get when you don’t have it all neat and tidy.They get tangled and lost …. and many yards of ribbon go untouched and missing. But with all these fun, nifty and stylish ideas … you’ll have all your ribbon organized and ready to use in a snap!

1. Use a dowel.

Take each of your spools of ribbon and place them onto a dowel held in place by brackets. They’ll be easier to find and it’ll be easier to grab a piece of ribbon and snip it off to use for your next project.

2. Grab a basket.

If you can find a basket similar to this make sure it includes all those tiny holes. That way you can sit two rolls of spools of ribbon and punch each thread through the holes so it’s easy to snag a bit.

3. Keep it in a drawer.

If you’ve got a drawer … use it! It’ll keep your ribbon stashed neatly away and out of sight, but never so out of sight that it’s lost in the hustle and bustle of a messy craft room.

4. Hang them up!
