Organizing Ribbon Roses

While I’ve been on my organizing mission, after reorganizing my ribbon, I started on my ribbon roses.  I searched the Internet for ideas to organize them, while still making them easy to get to.  I searched Pinterest, YouTube, Google images & Google.  All I could find were posts for making ribbon roses.

I’m sure other crafters out there have the same issues that I’ve had.  I actually came up with the idea because of a dream.  I was lost in a sea of ribbon roses & then the answer hit me.  It was so simple!

This is how I organized this mess:

They were actually organized, sort of.  They were neatly put into zippered plastic bags, but when I needed a certain color or size, I felt like I was on a treasure hunt.

I started with a couple of Craft Organizers that I got at Walmart for under $3.00 each.

This is the organizer opened.  Nice sized compartments.

I started by clipping off the wire stems of all of the ribbon roses, leaving enough on them so that they didn’t fall apart & if I need to add a stem to them, I can.

Then I separated them by color & type.

Once they were separated, I just put each color into a different compartment of the craft organizer.

While I was at it, I organized my lace & trims the same way that I did my ribbon.

Now there’s a place for everything.  There was even room behind the boxes to store my pearls by the yard & my doilies.

It’s amazing how much fits into that drawer now.  And everything is so easy to get to!

I hope this helps others to get a handle on all of those ribbon roses & embellishments that are always needed for their craft projects.

Happy Creating everyone!
