Simple Solution Sunday: Ribbon Roll Call

I love wrapping presents and putting really awesome curly Q's on them! Don't you?!? However, I do NOT love how tangled all the ribbon gets sitting in a basket in my arts and crafts closet. Honestly, it is downright maddening. A while back I bought tension rods that were intended to help wrangle the ribbon in my sewing area. Unfortunately, the tension rod I purchased was waay to big. So, I set it aside, intending to use it for something else. But, I never could come up with a use for the thing. So it sat. Until I had to start wrapping Hanukkah presents!

Let me tell you, I do not even want to think about the amount of money that I may have wasted over the years just by cutting instead of untangling the curling ribbon. So, in comes the tension rod! Seriously, this may be one of the best and all-time greatest of my simple solutions!

Here's what I did...

First, I read the instructions that came with the tension rod about how it works. (Every brand is a little different, so be sure to read the instructions that go with the rod you choose.)

Second, I marked how long the tension rod would actually be in the closet.

Third, I put the ribbon spools onto the tension rod.

Fourth, hang it up! and enjoy knowing that your curling ribbon will never be tangled again.
