    That you’re like stars
    They only show up when it’s dark
    Cause they don’t know their worth
    And I think you need to stop following misery’s lead
    Shine away shine away shine away
    Isn’t it time you got over how fragile you are
    We’re all waiting
    Waiting on your supernova
    Cause that’s who you are
    And you’ve only begun to shine

I love your blog! Just perusing through :)
I love finding new and fun ways to organize my craft area!
My friend recommended for craft storage and they have excellent furniture. It's a great option for anyone who doesn't have a ton of space for a craft room :)

Now-- back to reading more of your posts haha :)


Hi Suzy ~ Thank you SO much for your article and personal review on the "Ribbon Ring". I am always looking for neat and compact ways to store my forever-expanding stamp room; every little bit helps.

After reading your article in "Craft Critique", and a few of the other comments, I added it to my "MUST HAVE" shopping list and purchased one over the weekend.

Now can you come and thread all my ribbon for me? lol :)


Hi Suzy,
I've been using ribbon rings for just short of a year. I was complaining on my blog about having to keep using my hair straighteners to 'iron' out my ribbon and Melissa at Ribbon Ring sent me a sample, I immediately bought some and can vouch for their effectiveness - I wouldn't be without them. Have to admit - mine don't look as tidy as the ones in the photograph (lol).

That's what I get for not having time for blog hopping! I actually made a paper bag mini scrapbook and taught it to my Girl Scout Troop and their mother's this week. I even used "green" scrapbook paper. Hope to post in on my blog in the next few days anyway! Love the work you have been doing lately! I miss keeping up with my favorite bloggers!

I wasn't sure if you wanted us to comment here or over on Craftcritique so I will post both places.

Thanks for giving us your opinion on this storage system. I have seen it around lately and wondered how effective it is. I buy most ribbon by the spool and store it in a ribbon keeper I purchased. This product would be great for all my odd pieces that get wound around a piece of cardboard similar to the tag in this product and stored in a jar.


Awesome tutorial Suzy. Your pictures really made me understand how it all works. I just ordered my set. :)


Hi Suzy
because I have limited storage for my crafts I purchased some square plastic baskets from a local hardward store and the have about 40 round holes on each side so I thread my ribbons through that pink one side, blue the other etch and i place a shower cap over the top to stop things tumbling out the top. I just pull and it all comes through I love it and it works for me.

Most of my ribbon is stored in stacking ribbon storage boxes from Michaels. The unspooled ribbon is kept on a homemade version of your ribbon rings. I wrote an article about ribbon storage on my blog here:
