I cannot even begin to tell you HOW LONG I've been seeking for the END-ALL ribbon solution. Seriously. I've tried EVERYTHING from those stinkin' plastic ribbon things to the cards to the Making Memories magnetic jobs (those are nice, though...just not THE END-ALL solution).....to trying to make my own with wooden dowels...to........UGH..just shoving things in a container!
At the Mega Meet Expo thingy in Michigan last weekend, I saw this. It was on display at a local stores booth.....and.....it stopped me dead in my tracks. It did. I was drooling and I *KNEW* I *HAD* to have it. It was about half the regular price, too...so it was like, "UGH, I don't want to spend that much TOTAL AT ALL today", but at the same time, it was something that I knew I had to have and just couldn't find ANYWHERE.
So, I sucked it up and wrote the check....and I am not looking back!
This sucker is DEEP enough to hold the largest spools without them even reaching the top and wide enough to nearly hold every stinking piece of ribbon and spool I OWN! SERIOUSLY..and I am a ribbon-a-holic!
There is even this nifty little thing inside that you can push up against the last spool (if it isn't full) to keep it from falling over!
I want to shake this Renee's hand...that is one seriously smart chick!!! :) THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My search has ended!!
PROS: It helps to organize and keep track of ribbon supply. The small clips keep small ribbon scraps that are still usable I got a second one to store the remainder of bolt ribbon and store items that need to be out of reach of little fingers.
CONS: not enough small clips!! A ruler would be handy. It can not handle larger bolts of ribbon.
THOUGHT: Maybe they should offer items for an additional prices like extra clips, empty bolts that fit and in various ribbon sizes, an attachable box for delicate lace or storage for other items like binding or thread.
ME: Terrific storage gadget!!! I find that I rreally use my my ribbon more often now that I can see what I have!!! It is off the floor in some box and up on the wall where you can see it and use it!
I have tried many things with my ribbon storage dillema from boxes/bags with holes in them to wrapping them around cards. It always ended the same - with them stuffed into a drawer and jar in a tangled mess. I cannot tell you how easy this has made my life - as I LOVE ribbon - I now can see all the ribbon I have and easily use it. No more double purchases. No more digging through ribbon to find matches - its all at my finger tips. Pleasant side effect - I walk into my scrap space and the ribbon beckons me and my creativity gets a kick start. I would and have totally recommended this product to my friends.
The ribbon organizer is the best I've seen: very well made, holds a huge amount of spools and pieces, and eliminates the problem of removing several spools from a dowel to get to the one you want. I could not believe the Twelve Days of Christmas price of just $9.99. I bought only two so I could share, but now wish I had bought more at that price. The Scrapbook.com Twelve Days of Christmas sale had the best craft shopping bargains I have ever seen, and not just "kits" or "collections" but items you'd really want at unbelievable prices! Let's make this a holiday tradition Scrapbook.com.
Sorry this has taken me so long to respond. I had a difficult area to hang this in and it took my special "handyman" to help me. We just hung it and I am so pleased to eliminate the boxes I previously had my ribbons stored in. They are now organized according to color and are up and out of the way, thus allowing for more work space! Not only is this item very functional but, it looks great in its new color of white ( thanks to my "handyman") next to my white cabinets. I would recommend this to fellow organizers.
Excellent item- very sturdy and well-made. An absolute 'must have' for craft rooms, as it keeps all the ribbons, braids etc. both tidy and easy to use.
I also really like the fact that it has a slot for scissors and the strong little clips underneath keep all the smaller pieces to hand. Now I can actually see what I have - I wish I had bought this product years ago!
Having bought this item from overseas, I was very pleased with the excellent service and sooner than expected delivery - Thank you!
I have to agree with all reviews posted before me. This is a great storage solution for ribbon. It is large and deep to hold many sizes of ribbon/spools. Having it hanging on the wall is nice, it is out of the way but still accessible and in visual range so that you don't forget about what you have and can find the perfect ribbon for your page. I also had trouble getting the back part on to hide the nails, but I have it high enough that you can't really see it so I gave up trying to fit it on.
I snapped up the 1st Day Of Christmas item - the Clip It Up - Ribbon Organizer - just 9.99 plus shipping - WOW. It took a few days longer to ship than I had anticipated, but that is just a minor thing.
It was easy to mount, I had already marked the studs when I installed some new shelves. It really stores a lot of ribbon, I especially love the clips that hold the pieces not on a roll. I like the look and organization that the item gives to my roon.
She's over the moon! Finally, the boxes and boxes of ribbon spools can get put up and used, complete with a pair of scissors nearby for cutting them and clips for leftover scraps! She also loved that there isn't a rod that runs down the middle so that if she needs to remove a spool it isn't a major chore to get it out!
What a difference it makes in her craft room. Now she wants one for the gift wrap area, too! (Did I say she has this ribbon fetish?)
I purchased 2 of these ribbon organizers in the hopes of finally getting my ribbon organized. I have too much! The storage area at the top of the rack for the ribbon rolls holds many rolls. I put my card ribbon in bags and used the included clips to to hang them on the storage bar. The 2 racks are on the same wall, one over the other, so while they are large, the racks fit nicely in my room. Love, love, love this product!
I love, love, love this product. I have wasted so much money on different systems to organize and store my ribbon and am thrilled to have found this product. I can see what I have easily, easily use what I need and best of all, I no longer have to rewind ribbon that has slipped from the roll and spilled onto the floor. I like that it has a place to hold scissors, too. It is perfect!
What an excellent way to store ribbon. I tried Cropper Hopper products but that didn't work since they went into a drawer and I couldn't see the ribbon. And I tried there ribbon cases which were difficult to use. The clip it up products are wonderful. I can hang it up on the wall and see what I have. Pity I don't have more wall space since I would have bought more then one today.
I have been storing my rolls and pieces of ribbon here and there for such a long time, when I found this on sale I jumped on it! I bought two and hung them next to each other, I couldn't be happier! Now I have all my ribbons and fibers where I can see them and I don't have to dig to get what I need anymore. I really love the little clips too, they are so handy.

This is the perfect storage solution for all my ribbon. Not only does it hold spools, I can clip loose ribbon scraps to the organizer so there is no more digging through boxes and storage bags for just the right ribbon for a project. Hanging the organizer on the wall also freed up precious counter and storage space in my craft area.
I am in love with the Clip it up ribbon organizer. I realized after I received it last week that I should have ordered one from here years ago. It's a great way to utilize wall space that would otherwise go unused. You won't be sorry. Get one! Even though they are on backorder.. go ahead. You will be so glad you did.
Love, love, love my new Simply Renee Clip it Up Ribbon Organizer!!! I will be ordering more clips because I've run out already! :) It was super easy to mount even though I do not have a power drill!!! Glad to finally have my ribbons organized and out of the bag! Thanks SB.com for that amazing 1st day of Christmas sale!!!

OMG, I love this. Have wanted one for a long time and bought two on Cyber Monday. I have over 400 ribbons on it and I can see every one of them. I wrapped all the ribbons not on rolls (as I buy alot on Ebay) on some cards I made (6 to 8 to a card), then clipped them up. Will try to take a picture...Love, Love, Love it!
I just bought 2 of these durring the 12 days of Christmas sale and I am so glad I did! They arrived quickly and of course they were easy to order in the first place. They are very big, so now I'll have to figure out what else they can be used for besides holding ribbon! What fun, can't wait to hang them up!!
This is such a great deal. I have been looking @ this product for over a year trying to decide if I really wanted to spend the money for this. Now that it was on SALE, I was sold. This is a great addition to my brand new craft room. Scrapbook.com you are @ the top of my list for Great products & prices.
wow , i was amazed on how big it was, i didnt relize it was the long , i really like but it could of have had a few more stoppers in it or should say dividers, the ribbon sometimes falls down, but other that im glad this was a special, and have it upon my wall and using thanks again scrapbook.com
This one is the best. It doesn't matter what size spool your ribbon is on it will fit. There is room to clip olds and ends on the bottom or even other embellishments. Sturdy construction and easy to mount on the wall. Even I did it without help. I liked it so much I ordered one for a friend !
I got this item for a gift. I know this is something that she has always wanted to organize her ribbons, instead of having to sort through a draw. The photo looks just perfect for the ribbons. I will forward your email on to her. Thanks and am thankful I got the last one!
I cannot rate this as I purchased it for a Christmas Gift for myself and my daughter. Since they are both wrapped up & under the tree I don't know the verdict yet. They sure look great but will let you know after Christmas. Can only hope they are as great as the photo.
I absolutely adore this ribbon organizer! I have tried many ways to store my ribbon collection and this seems to be the best, by far! I bought 3 of these while they were on sale. I got 2 for myself and 1 to give as a gift to my mom. I just need to order more clips now!

This is the best thing since.... well it keeps all those silly little ribbon scraps organized! And it looks fantastic on the wall. All the color of your ribbons displayed just inspires more creativity! Absolutely awesome! It makes me happy to have things organized!
I absolutely love this product. It has enabled me to not only get all of my ribbons in one place but I can easily see what I have. An additional plus is that it has a place for the scraps of ribbon and lets you see the ribbon and how much you have. Wonderful!
Haven't filled it up yet, but what I have in there so far is great. I can just snip off a piece of ribbon to the size I need & I'm good to go. Also, the little clips on the bottom are great for those loose bits of ribbon I had hanging around. Great invention!!
I order this as one of the 12 day of Christmas deals. I had been watching it for sometime. For $9.99 I couldn't pass that up! When it arrived it was much larger than I anticipated but I am very pleased with my purchase. Now to figure out where to put it!
I have a lot of ribbon and this is the first product I have found that I can display it and have it handy for my projects. I know I will be using ribbon on more pages because I will be able to see what I have. I bought two 36" ones and may want more!
Easy to set up, cleans things up and sturdy. Came in back so it matched almost everything in my craft room. I was extremely happy. Oh yeah and I got it at $9.99 for each one with the wonderful sale scrapbook.com had for Christmas.
Sturdy, easy to use. Pulling ribbon from one spool does not cause other spools to unwind. Clip system to hang cards of ribbon and scraps expands functionality. I love this product so much, I searched online to find a second!
I absolutely love this item. It holds almost every size of ribbon that I own, including the last little scraps for them & scissors. Plus I can hang it out of reach of children, so they stop pulling the ribbon off the spools.
I have one Clip It Up Ribbon Organizer already, and jumped at the chance to get another 2! So wonderful to have the built in ruler! It's a great organizing tool, and to have it up on the wall saves so much space! Love 'em!
I got this for Christmas and I love it!! It looks so organized and pretty. I was worried that it would make my area look more cluttered, but it doesn't! I actually feel inspired by it because its so pretty to look at! :)

I am really happy with this piece of equipment.It hold a large assortment of my ribbons and has made it easier for me to see exactly what i have,what i am running low of,and what i need to get. And the price was AWESOME
What a deal on these ribbon organizers from Simply Renee, I had to buy 3 and love everyone of them. Hold toms of ribbon and even ribbon scraps can be clipped to the front. Now I have room to buy even more ribbon.
Ribbon every where. That is solved, as well the clips make great storage for thoes little items. I used Zipplock bags and cliped at the open end. Wonderfull, looks nice, steardy, and organized. I purchased 3.
Absolutely awesome! I loved to have my ribbons organized once and for all! It's bigger and deeper than I thought. I'll change all my scraproom because of it cause I have to put it on a prominent place... LOL!
If there is one word to describe me it's " organized"! And I am totally delighted with my Clip It Up Ribbon Organizer! This by far has been the best purchase I've made in the last year for my scraproom!
I had already purchased one of these, and at the great price you had I ordered 4 more. I am a quilter and have it well stocked with ribbon. I hang patterns and scissors from the bar. Love it!
This is a great item. I have this hanging over my craft table. It keeps my ribbon up out of the way and the bar and hanging clips are great for hanging wrap packs, scraps and my cutting mats.
Could believe how big the trays are. Don't think I'll be looking for a place to store ribbon for a very long time. Wish I had more wall space so I could hang a tray for each primary color. :)
No more storing my ribbons in a shoebox and forgetting what I have now that I've hung my organizer over my desk and everything is at my fingertips. By far, my best 2011 gift from Santa.
LOVE this product! Worked perfectly to hold my ribbons and get them out of a drawer. I didn't even know I had all those ribbons and now I can see them all so clearly! LOVE it!
I have not installed this in my sewing room, but I plan to soon. I have already recommended this organizer to a friend and she has ordered it. I make cloth art dolls and ribbons are a must in my craft...they are used for embellishment and clothing..shoes even hair. So I have a lot of ribbons and have tried putting them in drawers, boxes, containers of all kinds... I have to empty everything out to see what I have. This new Clip It Up Ribbon Organizer should improve my choosing the right ribbon for the doll.j I thought the price was great too..I have priced it on other websites and no one beats this price.
The Clip it Up Ribbon Organizer is exactly what I wanted and holds alot......I got 32 spools of ribbon in mine plus had room for 5 cards of seam binding in the side compartment. The only thing that kept me from giving it a 5 was that I had a hard time attaching the black plastic piece that goes across the back to hide the screws that attach it to the wall. Also, would have been nice to have extra supports on the bar that the clips go on as it does bow when you have it filled.
The only thing needing to be changed is the SHARP grip on the clips (need plastic tips).. it is going to crease and snag some of my ribbons. Also lacking in the shipment was INSTRUCTIONS... I spent hours organizing after my husband installed it in my craft room. I would have loved some advice on how to organize different sizes, textures and color variations.
Otherwise, I LOVE IT! High quality item and I got it during "the 12 Days of Christmas" @ 80% off!
Love the clips, didn't even realize how much ribbon I had in my drawer! So much easier to see and create with all you have. I wish I had more rolled ribbon but at this point I don't so I can't attest to that function, it seems like a dowel would be handy (although I know the point is to not need one). The divider, however, is sturdy and keeps what ribbon I do have in place. I also love the spots for scissors, neat.
The material this organizer is made out of is very thin and flexible. Not something I expected for the price of $80 which I'm soooo glad I didn't pay.(Bought on sale!) The organizer does what it says it'll do although my ribbon spools are of different sizes so takes alot of patience to get them organized into it. I really likes the clips at the bottom!
unfortunately, I didn't realize I would pay the shipping fee so I cancelled immediately after I purchased on line. The item was not packed and shipped to me. I mistakenly thought it was free shipping. I am sure I would like the product, but the shipping was too expensive. I will make an alternative product for me.
I love this item. Much bigger then I expected and I will be Able to hold lots of ribbon in it. The only thing I didn't like is it seems a little more "cheaply made" then I anticipated. But I got it when on sale for about $10 so I am very happy!
I think this was one of the best things I got for Christmas.
I am really glad that I got 3 of them since I will need them all.
The shipping was fast but really expensive, got hear exactly when they said.
I like this so much, I wish I would have bought two of them! My only complaint about it is the part that covers the screws keep falling off. Other than that, I recommend this product!
I love that I can see all of my ribbons at the same time and all my ribbons fit, it holds a lot! I believe it is extremely over priced but if you find it on sale (under $40), buy it!
Easy to install, can hold about 50 rolls of ribbons. The clips are easy to install, but sometimes hard to open. Makes organizing ribbons and ribbon scraps easy and accessible.
I always wondered why these were so expensive, and I still think at full price it is too much. But I got a really good deal on two of these through scrapbook.com that I couldn't pass up. I hung them up this weekend while reorganizing my scraproom. I really like them. Got a chuckle when my hubby looked at them and commented, "Why are you hanging a gutter on the wall?"
This product is functional, as advertised. I would be very upset with the quality had I not paid 1/2 price. It's made of plastic, all of the clips don't work, and the metal rod the clips hang on looks lightly tarnished. I would recommend this, but only on sale.
