Well, I found a great way to store ribbon that actually HOLDS UP!!! I have had the cardboard box holders with the hole for the ribbon to the poles that you slip the ribbon on...they break or get crushed! I found these sturdy ribbon plastic boxes that stack, sturdy and hold a lot of ribbon. It even comes with dividers if you really want to be an organized "freak"! I found these at the Container Store! Ours just opened this weekend! As I walked in, shocks of excitement were going through my body...it's a wonder world of every type of organizational "tool" you can imagine!!! They have the best stocking stuffers!
