Ta da! And this is what they look like now. It took many an hour I can tell you but oh the satisfaction now it is all done. The clear boxes I used are really cheap and from Ikea, they stack nicely too, come in loads of sizes all the way up to humungous!
They take two rows of my ribbon cards just nicely. The card was grey board from my stationers at 75p for an A2 sheet so only cost me £3.00 to do all my ribbons, with some to spare.
My pink stash is running scarily low, oh goody I get to shop!
Whites are a bit thin on the ground too!
Some of my fave pinks, the stitched grosgrain ones are by Anna Griffin and they are really good quality.
Spotty ribbon, there's just something about it. These all came from Hobbycraft and were great value.
Think the black/pink check one on the left is very reminisent of ooh la la underwear!.
Blimey where are my sunglasses!!
While we have our sunglasses on I'll sneak the limes in too.
Finally we have the rik rak. The ribbon I love to use in decorative sewing projects. There are some gorgeous velvet ones in there as well as the normal grosgrain ones. These all came from a company called American Crafts.
So there you have it, my ribbon organisation, I highly recommend it to all RAs, it is very theraputic and being able to see what I have will stop (or maybe not) my frequent impulse buys!
PS - I now have enough dolly clothes pins to start a launderette!
