Default Ribbon Storage Idea

well,
i went to Michael's today and saw something like this Cropper Hopper - Ribbon Spool Holder Drawer - Medium - Two and One-Fourth by Two and One-Fourth - 2.25x2.25 for $9.99.
so i thought, i'm not gonna spend $9.99 for a storage like that..
i went to ribbon area in Michael's.. and took all the empty ribbon boxes
and came home organizing them.. they look neat just like in Michaels.. LOL
for free it looks fine n my place is more organized

That is funny and a great idea. They should all fit well on a shelf.

You can fill one box of all the ribbon you are using on a project to keep it neat on your work table. (Thinking out loud)

You probably go to the same one as me. I went twice in the past few weeks. First time they had nothing, second time they had more selection. I guess that ribbon goes fast.

As for the box idea. I love it. I should have thought of that!
