Chances are if you do any craft/sewing/gift wrapping, you have a pile of ribbon scraps somewhere. For me, I had an apothecary jar just bursting at the seems. It was a mess. Rather than let it continue to overflow, I decided to get my act together and organize!
All you really need is a wooden spool, tape, and straight pins. I taped the ribbon end to the spool so that I could pull it tightly as I wrapped. Once your ribbon is completely wrapped, secure with a small straight pin and store!
100 times better, don’t you think? And it only took me about 10 minutes.
