Wire Ribbon Storage Idea

This is the perfect way to organize wire ribbon and get rid of all those large half used ribbon spools!  Using “Foam Ribbon Rolls” we were able to eliminate the bulky cardboard spools and place ribbon in a small bin that will fit in a drawer or a small shelf.  Ribbon is now easy to see at a glance and takes up less space!

Directions for Organizing Wire Ribbon:

1)  Find the seam in the Foam Ribbon Roll and separate enough of the seam to place end of ribbon inside roll.  This will hold the end in place while you roll!
