Mess Management Monday #5: Craft Room- Printed Ribbons

So I've already shown you how I organize my Solid Color Ribbons, and I told you how much I love Snapware containers when I organized my Crochet Caps and Headbands. My printed ribbons are stored in 6 of these containers with 3 layers in each.  Yes, that is 18 layers of storage!  If you are using my previous Solid Color Ribbon Storage, you will like to know I can fit all of the 5 yard rolls from one bookshelf in 5 or 6 layers of these containers.  If you are short on space this is an excellent solution.  I don't use this method for my solid ribbons because I use them more often and I like to be able to see them. 

Eighteen layers:
An Open Case
1.  3/8" Solids
2.  3/8" Dots
3.  3/8" Stripes
4 & 5.  3/8" & 5/8" Patterns
6.  Swiss Dots
7, 8, & 9.  Polka Dots
10.  Zebra Prints
11.  Animal Prints
12.  Fruits and Sweets
13 & 14.  Stripes
15.  ALL Pink and Brown Prints, Stripes, and Dots
16.  Sports and Team Colors
17.  Gingham
18.  Funky Dots

  9. Hi Lisa-

    My best- Diane

  10. Can you email me a link of the kind that you buy? Thanks so much! I love this idea!!

  11. @Katy @ Live Laugh Love CraftI buy the containers from Target. This is the link to them online, but they are cheaper than this in my store, so you may want to check locally.

    They used to sell them on The Container Store's website, but I couldn't find them there.
