A while back I mentioned that I was working on some organization ideas for my studio. For me, it is much more fun to be creative when I am around things I like. So I have been working on prettying up my space.
Even small bits of ribbons are great for cards, tags and other fun things that I create. But, there was a problem with the "throw them in a Ziploc bag" system that I have been using for years. Even the blue and red zipper bags were... well... bags.
I went searching the web for Ribbon Organization ideas. I just KNEW I could find lots of good ideas... and I did, but either I did not have the supplies on hand or the item cost money.
I tossed ideas around in my head for a while and finally came up with this one:
Yep, baby food jars. Now, they come in great cardboard cases. Who knew? I remember juggling 30 or so of these jars and two toddlers in the grocery store. No handy dandy little box twenty years ago.
I used my old friend Modge Podge and fabric to cover the box and there you have it, a pretty way to keep my bits of ribbons organized. Yes, that was a shameless reference to my blog name. A gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do.
