Took a super cheap wood box (maybe $1 store), painted it (not very neatly I might add), and then drilled several holes all over it in 2-3 different sizes. This real helped me clear out all those random strips that get pulled off the spool or I buy at the LSS by the yard and such. I also have a large mason jar that holds all the little pieces so I can easily see them. This has helped my organize the huge collection of ribbon. TFL!
