How to Make a Ribbon Storage Device

As a Bowdabra Designer I have an amazing collection of ribbon. I create with ribbon so often, that I need ribbonwall_2-211x300to see all the different ribbon styles, colors, textures, and sizes that I have quickly and easily.   I designed a ribbon storage device that hangs on my studio wall that lets me view a huge variety of ribbon and effortlessly remove it from the storage device.

Before I made my own homemade storage device any ribbon I had that was not on a spool I folded it and stored it in small plastic bin storage containers. The problem with folding your ribbon is that it leaves creases. I also had an entire shelving unit dedicated to plastic storage containers and I would have to search through each bin to find the ribbon I wanted. It was a very time-consuming process.

To make my ribbon storage device: I cut two sections of 28? high green coated garden fencing that I had leftover from an outside project. I cut each section 28? by 28? with wire cutters.

To hang the ribbon storage device on the wall I used picture nails.   I slightly rounded the green fencing so that it was not flush against the wall.   By rounding the fencing it made it very easy to hang my ribbon onto the fencing.   I hung the first section of fencing and began to place large width ribbon onto the fencing.   I started at the bottom and worked my way up. (Notice the ribbon in the below picture has creases it is because I had just unfolded the ribbon.   However, within a couple of days the creases were gone hanging from my storage device.)

Next, I hung the second piece of fencing, again using picture nails, and on this section I hung my hair bow ribbon (smaller width ribbon).   To place ribbon onto the fencing just insert the ribbon through the fencing bring it around, over, and then let it hang.

I have used a variety of different ribbon storage devices but this homemade one is by far my favorite.   I love that with a quick glance I can see a huge variety of ribbon, I love that it is so easy to remove the ribbon, and I love that my ribbon storage device is also like a piece of artwork hanging on my studio wall.   Every time I look at all that ribbon I feel inspired!
