Another “How Do I” post for you all! Today I will be talking about how I store my ribbons and trims. This is also a largely talked about topic among craft storage. Everybody has ribbon on spools, off spool in pieces and its just hard to keep track of it all and of course keep it organized. I have found that my method has worked pretty wonderful for me. I have really loved using this method and haven’t had a problem at all!
Basically all I do is store my ribbons and trims in small wicker like baskets. These baskets were picked up very inexpensively at Marshall’s. I think I got all 5 of them (3 hold my trims | 2 hold paper) for like $30. They are all fabric lined as well which makes it very nice for these trims because then they don’t get stuck to the inside wicker stickers (hehe, like poking out wicker).
This is what my set up looks like. I have all of these baskets on my counter right under the window. In the larger basket on the left I store my name brand trims from Prima, Maya Road, Websters Pages and so on. In the basket on the right I store laces with no brand (normally vintage and thrift store finds). In the back basket I store all my ribbons. I have SOOOOOO many ribbons in that small back basket (at least 300+ yards). And then I filled in the blanks with a few other baskets which hold my 6×6 & 8×8 paper pads.
Lovely just Lovely! I love all the colors, textures and styles of the trims. I find they add a huge pop of color to my room. So yeah, that is basically how I store my trims. I actually do store more trims that are on rolls on a wire like shelf/basket unit thingy that is mounted to my wall. I need another because its way jam packed!
