I LOVE ribbon...love to buy, love to use, love to collect, but storing has ALWAYS been a huge problem for me. I have tried a number of other products, but was unhappy with all of them. Then I saw this bag. I ordered it immediately. When I got it in the mail and opened the box I looked at it and thought "okay this isn't what I pictured, but oh well". First tip I can give you is to use a hair dryer on a medium heat to get the folds out of the clear plastic and smooth out the sides. Works great!!! After I did that I began filling in the bottom holes with ribbons. I can truly say it was like Christmas. I didn't know I had so many ribbons. They were everywhere in my scrappy bins. Now they are very nicely organized, I can see them all. And the next thing I did after all my ribbons were organized...went out and bought more ribbons! I organize mine kind of by color/holidays. There is room in the bag for ALOT of ribbon, I am hoping to have it full by next month.
I was so excited to receive this a few days ago!! I purchased it with my winning shopping spree gift cert...Thanks SB.com!! Anyway, this is absolutely adorable when filled, and it's made from very high quality materials. Like many of you, I'd tried various types of storage solutions, only to be disappointed. I had a drawer jam packed with ribbon and I was able to free up that space by putting all my ribbon into this little purse. The lid also has an internal pocket for scissor storage. One word of advice....start filling from the bottom and work your way up. This is one of those great products I wish I'd invented....like velcro or the rolling suitcase!! I would highly recommend this to all ribbon junkies!!
i just started using a lot of textiles on my cards and LOs. i had the hardest time organizing my ribbons. i always ended up with a huge ball of mess or half torn up pieces of cardboard. my collection is no longer this way. i can easily find the perfect ribbon. i have also ended up with some ribbon combinations i normally would have never imagined, but, since the ribbon is put in the purse quite randomly, i see them in totally different combinations than on color-coded cards like i saw before.
i would call this purse an enabling tool, but not in the worst way. i love the texture that ribbon can add and i love how this purse organizes and presents my ribbon for me!
a must have!
I first saw this product about a month ago, and immediately thought to myself "This could be answer!" I have so many ribbons of all shapes and sizes, that I had four completely filled ribbon boxes and then more bins just full of ribbons of all lenghts. I started filling this great case at the bottom with my large ribbon, and worked my way up. I actually fit ALL my ribbon in with still room for more! The very best thing is that I easily take it with me to crops, and I can always see EXACTLY what I have in my personal inventory. I LOVE this case and I think others will too!!
I love this item and I wish I would have thought of it! It is very easy to use and holds a ton of ribbon. I thought I had a lot of ribbon, but I still have much more space to fill this up with a bunch more. I love the different colors the purse comes in and I got mine in red. If you have a lot of ribbon, this item is a must have. The best thing to do is start at the bottom when you fill it up. I just started with my pink ribbon, then went to my green, and so on. That way all the same colors are in the same location on the purse. Go buy one NOW!
