We are going to make a handy scrapbooking organization tool for ribbon storage. You have probably seen these cute clear plastic ribbon containers in the store selling for $21.99. While ours isnít exactly the same it serves the same function and only costs a fraction of the ones selling in the stores.

Supplies needed for the Project:

  • Clear plastic tote
  • Hole punch
  • assorted ribbon
  • I got my tote in Target for $5.99. The style I chose is called a mini train case. It has a handy handle on the top to carry. Simply chose a style that suits your needs. It should be plastic or vinyl and make sure it is not lined, open up your selection an look at it critically from the view point of using a hole punch on it. If it is lined, too thick or made of fabric it most likely will not be suitable.

    Except for your ribbon there is no other cost to this project assuming you already own a standard hand held hole punch. Once you have your plastic container, punch holes in it roughly 1 inch apart. Put a piece of ribbon inside and thread through one of the holes so it pokes outside the bag and inch or so. Continue with more ribbon until you have all your ribbon stored or you run out of holes. As an alternative if you have an eyelet setter with a separate hole punch attachment to be used with a hammer, this can also be used and may in fact be easier.

    This is a fun and easy way to store your ribbon and be able to see all your supplies at a glance. With this in hand scrapbooking organization is at your fingertips.

    You can use a fancy shaped hole punch as long as the hole it makes is comparable to a standard size punch. A star or heart shape would be fun shapes to try, especially if you are making one as a gift.

    Keep inserting ribbon until you have used up all your holes or your container is full. Hope you had fun making this project with us.
