Challenge Day 8 DIY Ribbon Organizer

I've been organizing my Scrapbooking/Craft area
for quite a while on and off, just whenever I have a little time
So this is my creative moment of the day.
This picture right here shows you where I've been planning to put
all my ribbons,
never mind the mess I have there, I'll work on it little by little
right now I just wanted this ribbons up there :D
This is an old but very firm repurposed entertainment center
which I am using for all my scraps, crafts, knitting, painting, etc.
The edge was very rough looking
that's why I painted right there

Now for the creative part :)
I bought a dowell to put my ribbons on
but I didn't have a way to hold the dowell
and my husband had this very handy super big paper clips
and Wala!

There is my ribbon holder :)

Now that I think about it, I should go paint the dowell too lol
Not the prettiest but very thrifty and very handy too :)
thanks for visiting :)


  1. Ribbon holder is so creative. :)
    Happy Weekend
    Keep in touch,

  2. wow, that is such a clever use of those very strong clips! I'm gonna' steal your brilliant idea! =)

    1. Oh go right ahead :) after all Imitation is the best form of admiration :)

  3. I used clips in my art for tomorrow's entry. Maybe cleverness with clips is going around. I love this idea.... I don't use ribbons much but I have so many ideas and reasons to install a dowel in my work area now and "borrow" from you... quite extravagantly! :`-)

  4. What a clever idea. I've struggled for years to find a way to store my ribbon. Too bad I don't have one of those cabinets, because I have loads of those big binder clips, I sometimes call "barbie doll purses."

  5. You are brilliant! I too am going to have to use this idea I'm afraid. Not sure how yet, but it's too good too forget! Thanks for sharing this!

    1. Oh wow! I feel flatter! :) thanks so much for your awesome comments :)
