Today's tip involves a little organization for your ribbons.
Find a rectangular wicker basket, one that is long & as wide as you would like and then find a wood dowel or dowels depending on how many rows of ribbon spools you want to set into the basket.
Insert one end of the dowel into the basket, thread your ribbon spools through that dowel until you fill the basket. Then insert the other end of the dowel into an opening in the wicker basket on the opposite end. If it hangs a little out of the sides of the basket this is okay. In fact, it should.
It will help balance the weight of your ribbon spools & even provide a place for you to hang some precut pieces, ribbon rings or loose fibers. So gage how far out you want those dowels to protrude from each end of the wicker basket.
Remember that you can paint the dowels to match your basket or even hot glue some inexpensive finials at the end to give it a high end look or to match your current decor.
Depending on how wide your basket it is you may get two rows of ribbon or more.
When it is all said & done you will have economical, visible and practical storage for your ribbon stash.
You could keep it out filled with all your favorites & even hang it on the wall.
There are lots of basket options out there- decorative, with handles, without handles, assorted colors & varieties of themes, so it can be fun & functional.
I have seen wicker baskets at the dollar store and dowels as well, so for as low as $2 you can make ribbon storage. That price point will allow you to construct a storage unit for your ribbons that will definitely make the most of your money, time & talent.
