I recommend Ikea kitchen solutions - the wall mounted stuff is great for organising ribbons!

I have a shoe rack it is a tall one with poles that I put the ribbon on. I'm always looking for more ideas about store and how to keep it all neat and tidy.

My biggest thing is keeping the ribbon ends organised... I have tried pins, tape... Any other suggestions? It drives me mental as I am a HUGE neat-freak!

I have little pins that are about 1cm long, so far they have worked the best for me. But can be a pain to keep unpinning and re pinning.

I use a snap clip on the end of the ribbon, it works perfectly for me!

I use pins to keep my ribbon's neat on the ends and they're going up in a cupboard on dowel this week - whenever hubby gets some motivation!

I'm lucky to have a new baby, so I'm using altered/decorated formula tins to keep embellishments, ribbon off cuts etc in - also some clear chinese containers and woven baskets.

I don't think there's ever an easy solution to this mess - my office is spotless one day and completely wrecked the next.

I am with the others, I use a snap clip to keep the ends organised, however I am also new so my collection of ribbon isnt that grand yet.

Hope this helps, Joy Very Happy

For small amounts of ribbon I use tape and put them in the flat fishing tackle boxes from K-mart. They have removable dividers so you can divide them any way.

You can also get these little boxes that are 10mm wide from scrapbooking shops. They hold about 2m of ribbon.

Good luck.

I tidied/organised my ribbon last night. I currently keep it in a big plastic storage container, and the rolls were just loose. I had some spare dowel so sorted them into colours and then put a bulldog clip on the end so they wouldn't slide off, and then just laid the dowels down in the storage box. Not the best idea, but I just couldn't stand it anymore, when trying to find a spool of ribbon.
My husband and I LOVE!!! IKEA, so don't need an excuse to go shopping there, just have to remember to keep an out for the kitchen solutions range.
