Tuesday's Tips & Techniques: A Ribbon Skirt



I have been long struggling with ribbon storage. It multiplies so much faster than I can contain it.  I have my beaded trims in jars and that works great for them. I have my ric rack in jars; again, works great for that. But my ribbons...I need to see them to use them so imagine my delight when I ran across an idea for storing them on a dress form in Creating Keepsakes. I grabbed my Hobby Lobby coupon and ran out the door to get a gorgeous little iron dress form I had been admiring but wouldn't buy since I didn't "need" it. Well, now I needed it!


Creating the "skirt" only took a few minutes. The ribbons are simply folded in half
 
and the loop is pulled around one of the bars
Then the ribbon tails are pulled through the loop
Done!

To take a piece of ribbon off the form, I just grab it by the loop and pull. Easy peasy and super cute in my scraproom.
I already had another wall-mounted dress form that holds flowers and packaged ribbons so this new one fits in just perfectly!
