Ribbon Ring

When I reorganized my scrap room last year, I devoted one drawer in my Crop In Style unit to Ribbons & Punches. I don't have a large amount of either so they fit nicely. The down side to this solution is that the drawer is getting full and I'll often forget about the ribbon while working on a project because it is out of sight.

When I received an email on April Fools' Day asking if I'd be interested in trying the Ribbon Ring, I about fell out of my chair. My second reaction was wondering who was playing a joke on me. Deciding maybe it was just my lucky day, I responded with an enthusiastic "Yes!" And today, I found a package in my mailbox from the kind folks at Ribbon Ring.

Instead of hiding in a drawer, my colorful ribbons are now hanging next to my desk where I can easily grab one for a project. The package came with a 2" binder ring, (30) ribbon tags & (30) inventory dots.

The tags are approximately 1-1/2" wide x 2" tall with 1" wide openings. As you can see from the photo on the right - (2) American Crafts ribbons easily fit side by side. I put most of the ribbon I had in my drawer onto the Ribbon Ring and still have tags available.

Threading the ribbon onto the tags was very simple. Chester had fun "helping" me with it (ie, batting at the ribbon ends as I pulled them through). Thankfully he quickly lost interest and I think my ribbons are now safe. ;)

Rather than keeping all of the fun to Chester & me, I'm going to have a giveaway. I have a box sitting here filling up with scrapping goodies for one of my lucky readers. And it will include a Ribbon Ring starter kit courtesy of Ribbon Ring. Many thanks to MB!

For your chance to win, simply leave me a comment on this post between now and 9pm ET Sunday night. Best of luck!

ETA: We have a winner! :)

  1. oooh!

    I don't have any pretty ribbon like that, but I do have several spools of ribbon around here, which I do use for crafting.. I think I even posted a pic of one of my crafts a couple months back.

  4. Sarah, Congratulations, that is a great idea, for ribbon storage. I know what you mean about having them out of sight. Enjoy it.

  6. Well how cool was that for them to send you one and even cooler that they sent you one to give away. I haven't seen any of these anywhere around here but think it's a great idea (for cat free homes of course, LOL). I used to have a terrible time putting ribbons on Christmas packages because Jeremy's cat would chew them right back off, she loved that curly ribbon. Finally gave up using them because I was afraid she's swallow it and make her sick. Was very sad this holiday when I realized I could use them again because she had passed away.

  10. How cool is that! I'd love a chance to win, as my organization of ribbon is definitely one of my biggest weaknesses.

  11. Wow, how pretty that looks displayed. I have my ribbon wrapped around wooden clothespins and put in a glass jar. I still have issues with that because my jar isn't big enough for all my ribbon and they keep unraveling. I started to put common pins in them and now I pick myself while rummaging through the jar. I NEED one of these ribbon rings. Thanks for offering one up for blog candy.

  12. Great job! It looks awesome! I have mine hanging up too, and I find I use it a lot more than when it was in drawers :) Enjoy!

  13. My ribbon is still on the spools in a litle basket that is tucked away and OUT OF SIGHT! Therefore I don't know what I have. Thanks for the chance to win.

  26. Very cool design. I've been wanting to try one for a while now. At the moment my ribbons are all just shoved in a ziplock. Not the easiest to work with.
