Ribbon Storage Ideas

Hello everyone! Allison from A Glimpse Inside back again. Can you believe it is the last Friday of January already?! I sure can’t but since it is Friday, that means it is time for another Must Have Craft Tip! Today I am finishing up our month of craft room storage solutions with Ribbon Storage Ideas!

 

Raise your hand if you have way too much ribbon than you know what to do with (raising my hand!)?! Like seriously, why do I have so much ribbon and WHY do I still buy it?! haha I have it kinda organized, some on my wall, others stacked on a spice rack, some one a dowel rod, but I would love a better solution to have them all in one place.  

I’ve gathered some great ideas that should help you get organized no matter what the size or your ribbon collection. 

 Use molding to create shelves like Paper, Scissors, and Superheroes

 Hanging Ikea wire baskets from Entirely Smitten

 Make a ribbon holder using an old Pringles Can from Malo Ustvarjalno
Perfect for smaller ribbon collections.

DIY Ribbon Tabletop Shelf from She’s Kinda Crafty

 Mount gutters on the wall to place ribbon inside from Life in the Car Line

Use and old ladder and add dowels for storage from The Daily Marker 
Love this idea! 

 Large wall unit with wall mounts and dowels from Southern Hospitality

 Small tote ribbon holder from Spunky Junky

 Curtain Rod and Curtain Ring Storage from The Creative Homemaker

 DIY Paper Towel Holder, Ribbon holder from The Cottage Mama

Have small spools of ribbon? Use old Tic Tac containers to store them! from Craft and Creativity

String ribbon on a dowel and add it to a shelf or hutch!

I hope one of those ways will help you organize your ribbon! 

How do you organize your ribbon? Stay tuned next month when we begin a whole new topic!

Scrappy Whimsical Dreamcatcher

I thought I’d take the opportunity to clean out my ribbons/lace/trimmings bin to create something pretty for my daughter’s bedroom. How fun is this Scrappy Whimsical Dreamcatcher?

For this project you will need:

  • embroidery hoop
  • doily
  • scraps of ribbon, trimmings, lace, etc.
  • hot glue gun + glue sticks
  • scissors

Gather up your supplies and all of the scraps that go well together. In my case, I picked pinks and whites… great for Valentine’s Day or my daughter’s bedroom.

Remove the inner hoop of the embroidery round and cover it with the doily. Secure it around the edges of the inner hoop with hot glue and trim all the excess with your scissors.

Add the outer hoop back on and secure. Then start tying on and gluing your scraps to the bottom of the hoop. Just slip the ends through the doily openings.

Once you are happy with the scraps added, use your scissors to trim up the bottoms to the desired length. Then hang it on a wall!

Thanks so much for hanging out with me for a bit! 

Neon Little Miss Maxi Dress

Melissa at Melly Sews has a great series this month called 30 Days of Summer Dresses.
I was thrilled when Melissa invited me to be apart of this series! I love a good challenge and a little extra motivation…crafting with a purpose, if you will. 
When dreaming of the sundress I was going to create, I decided to think about this summer’s trends for my inspiration. So in case you missed it at Melly Sews, here’s what I came up with…
My daughter is my biggest inspiration, so I made the sundress for her.
The neon colors in this fabric are not only a fashion trend but they just scream SUMMER, don’t you think?
I used a white t-shirt for the top of the dress and added on the fun fabric to maxi-fy it : )
After making the maxi, it was missing something. So I added the bloom ribbon belt.
Perfect.
My sewing skills are beginner-intermediate status. I’m by no means a pro. But I looooooove to sew, so I keep practicing. Thanks to Melissa of Melly Sews, I was able to create my first ever maxi dress.
And lucky for me, this girl loves her new dress and is proud to show it off. She must be used to being photographed…she came up with all these poses on her own. Little ham.
 I hope you like the Neon Little Miss Maxi!
Be sure to check out all of the amazing dresses over at Melly Sews!
I hope you all are having a great weekend celebrating your dads, hubbies, grandpas, etc! 
We made these fun pinspired cards for my husband and his father…
Aren’t they fun?!
Have a great weekend, friends!
I’m also sponsoring a GIVEAWAY for a credit to my shop over at FemmePetal
