I've been organizing everything lately.
One of the things I've wanted to tackle for a while is this mess ...
This is only a small portion of the ribbon pile
because I started this project without taking a "before" picture.
Duh. How long have I been blogging?
I didn't want to spend money on this project.
I'm trying to declutter, so I didn't want a bunch of jars on the wall.
Then I saw what Chris at Just a Girl did with her ribbon.
I still wasn't convinced I wanted to do this project
because I'm really too lazy to cut cardboard and wrap ribbon.
It took me a couple of weeks of looking at the
ribbon pile to finally commit to wrapping.
But I was still too lazy to cut cardboard, so I used index cards instead.
I took 4 cards (to make it sturdy enough),
folded them lengthwise, and stapled them (you don't have to staple).
Then I wrapped the ribbon.
Once I started wrapping, I couldn't stop because it looked so good.
I fastened small ribbon with a stapler.
Big ribbon I fastened with a rubber band.
This is one of my favorite ribbons.
It's just dollar Walmart fabric ripped up.
I love the little fringe.
I put them all in one of my scrapbook paper drawers.
Isn't it beautiful?
