Ribbon Organization

I  have my craft space in one of my bedrooms which limits my space.  So I've taken to trying to organize some of my treasures.   Last week I decided to work on my ribbon. This is my finished product.
The rolls ribbon comes on take up a lot of room.  So I thought if I created a cardboard spool to wind my ribbon on, I could reduce the space taken up by it.  So I created a file in my Gypsy (yes in my Gypsy) using George & Basic Shapes. 
This is what my cut looked  like after I removed the spools. 

This is what each spool looked like.  I used heavy paper, Strathmore Vellum Smooth found in the artist aisle at Michael's. It's a pad of paper.

I found these Iris organizers at Hobby Lobby for $6.99.  After I finished with my ribbon, I found Iris organizers at Michael's on sale 2 for $9.00, which is the story of my life.
I hope this will give you an idea of how you can free up some space in your craft space.  Thank you for visiting us today.  We hope you come back tomorrow.  God Bless You!!!!  Peggy
