Ribbon Storage Solution

Again with the moving organization....
I had a bad ribbon problem.

I remembered something Shannon had told me about using jars for ribbon organization.
I'm sure this has been done before, but this is my take on it.
You'll need - various clean jars, fabric scraps, rubber bands, scissors, and an unruly mess of ribbons.

Organize your ribbon by color - and put each color in a different jar.

Leave little tails of ribbon hanging out.
Snip a little cross into the center of a scrap of fabric - feed the ribbon through - then secure it to the jar with a rubber band.  Trim off any excess fabric about 1/4" from the rubber band.

No more ribbon mess.
Happy organizing.
