I have found a good way to store small amounts of ribbon without investing in something as big and bulky as a craft-locker. I purchased in the sporting goods section of the department store, plastic tackle-boxes that are flat and semi-transparent. they have several small sections about 1.5 inches deep and ranging from .5 to 1.5 square. I found several sizes. I have a large box for pieces of ribbon at least 12 inches long, a medium box for specialty ribbons, and a small box for pieces under 12 inches. This method has worked out pretty well for me, and took less than a $6.00 investment!
