Hi my name is Mara and I'm a Ribbon-Holic

Because a girl can never have too much ribbon! And the scary thing is there are still many times I am in the middle of a project and I STILL can't seem to find just the perfect ribbon! At first I had them on those adorable doll clothes pins-which I painted white (cause I am all match-ey match-ey like that). I quickly realized that the pins took up WAY too much valuable jar space. Then I tried just dumping the ribbons in the jar all loose and flowing- but that just became a tangled mess. Then someone on 2peas suggested this method which works PERFECTLY! I spooled each ribbon around my hand and then secured them with a tiny rubber pony tail holder. If I had a whole spool of ribbon- I simply slid it off the spool and removed the hard cardboard core.
I completely lucked into these jars at a dollar store and bought every one they had. They fit perfectly in this little alcove I have in my cabinet. I managed to score 13 of them and would love 3 more as I can't stuff another piece of pink ribbon into the jar I have. So far I only have needed 2 jars for my green and blue ribbon. Everything else fits into 1 jar (well pink and orange are overflowing at the moment. lol)
So there you have it- my fantabulous, totally over the top ribbon hoard.

    Came here from your link to this post on SCS, and I just have to tell you that I LOVE this!! I have two cases of mason jars in my basement, and I think I'm going to use them to do my own variation of your storage. Thank you so much for sharing! :)
