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

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!
